A thief is being hunted for stealing a mobility scooter from a Sheffield pensioner.

The crook stole the Invacare Orion scooter, which is a silvery grey colour, from the Donetsk Way tram stop in Hackenthorpe between 6.30pm and 7.15pm last night.

South Yorkshire Police said the machine is its 76-year-old owner's 'primary means of transport now he no longer drives'.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "To the front and rear of the scooter were personal items stored inside a basket and bag.

"Please remain vigilant for a scooter matching this description and report anything of note.

"The victim - a 76-year-old male - has asked for our help in trying to locate it.

"The scooter is the victim's primary means of transport now he no longer drives."
