THE BROMSGROVE nurse whose car was stolen in a car-key bruglary after a 14-hour shift on an Intensive Treatment Unit (ITU) said she had been ‘totally overwhelmed’ by the response she had received from everyone.

Sarah Banks got back to her home in Catshill and the £30,000 white Golf GTI performance was taken from her driveway between 10pm on Monday and 9.30am on Tuesday after the burglars broke into her house and stole her ‘pulse’ smart key.

From the house they also stole a burgundy large cross-body Radley pocket bag and the glasses she needs so she can work.

She has since been given a courtesy car from Lister VW Nuneaton so she can get to and from the hospital to undertake her shifts, looking after patients.

The brand manager at the dealership Adam Burden is also helping her with all the insurance paperwork she needs to complete following the theft.

A fund-raising campaign has been launched by Kate Cotterill to replace her glasses.

Sarah told The Standard: “I’ve been totally overwhelmed by everyone’s response.”

She said she wanted to thank everyone and added: “I honestly just wanted information to catch the thieves, I didn’t expect this response.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
