The grey Seat Arona FR was stolen from outside Longley Ambulance Station on Crowder Road, Longley, after the keys were taken from an ambulance parked outside a house on a nearby street.

While a patient was receiving treatment, a thief broke into an ambulance and stole a bag, which contained a set of car keys.

The crook traced the car to a nearby ambulance station and drove off in it during an incident last Thursday night.
