It was later found abandoned in Hamilton Road, between Newark Road and Coxmoor Road. It had sustained electrical and body work damage.

PC Simon Cantrill, of Nottingamshire Police, said: “Unfortunately, due to this theft, the owner is now without transport for several weeks and is confined to his electric wheelchair, which has a limited charge.”

He urged anyone with information to contact police on 101. In particular, officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have driven past the pair with dash-cam footage.
