    Story

    A car belonging to an 81-year old man, full of Christmas presents, was reported stolen from a car park on Tuesday 15 November 2016 after the car was stolen from the Lower Thames Walk car park at Bluewater.

    The pensioner was sitting in his car with the engine running when he was approached by two men in another vehicle.

    These men spoke to the driver saying there was something dangerous on the back of his car and when the driver got out of the vehicle one of the men then got into the car and drove it away.

    The man had just been Christmas shopping with his wife and was awaiting her return when the incident happened.

    These men stole their brand new car a Skoda with 200 miles on the clock, the first car this couple have bought in 20 years and all the presents in it. The police are looking for witnesses.

    Bluewater have kindly given the couple £250 in vouchers but they lost so much more.

    This page has been set up with permission from a family member to help raise some money to at least cover the cost of replacing the presents stolen.

    Please help us bring a little Christmas spirit to this couple and help raise some money so they can replace the presents - thank you!

      It's an absolute disgrace that people could have done this to an elderly man and his wife out shopping for gifts. I hope they can put this behind them by Christmas time and best wishes to them.
