A HOSPITAL worker finished a night shift to find their car had been broken into in the car park.

The incident involving a red Mini outside Ross-on-Wye Hospital was one of at least three in the town involving vehicles early on Saturday morning.

Tools were also stolen from a silver Ford Transit van in The Gresleys, while a sports bag was stolen from the passenger seat of a blue BMW parked in Merrivale Lane.

Police in the town have warned motorists not to leave items on view in parked cars and to be vigilant.

Marius Drazdauskas posted an appeal on Facebook for any CCTV in the area of The Gresleys after his van was targeted.

“A thief broke into my van and stole lots of tools around 5am this morning…

“If someone offers you tools let me know. Here is a list what’s gone... Dewalt impact driver in Box with 2 batteries and charger, brand new; Dewalt circular saw; Dewalt grinder; Paslode gas nail gun; Red Hilti gun.

“If anyone has CCTV let me know please.”

A woman posted a photo of the Mini saying: “Hope to let the owner know, red Mini Cooper has been broken in to in the Ross Hospital car park.”

Another poster replied: “It was someone on a night shift at the hospital. Not nice to come out of work to.”

West Mercia Police reported that two pairs of sunglasses had been stolen from the Mini.

BMW owner Andrejus Silivanovas posted a photo of his smashed window on Ross Public Noticeboard Facebook page, saying: “Amazing morning at Merrivale Lane. Broken window, stolen bag with my gym nutrition (hope they enjoy it and my dirty sock).

“If anyone saw something or has cctv cameras around it will be helpful.

“Car was broken into at 4.50am this morning. Keep safe.”

PCSO David Alexander urged motorists: “Please be vigilant, review your vehicle security and do not leave valuables on display.”
