Paramedic on Covid frontline distraught as handbag stolen from ambulance during gruelling 10-hour shift

A PARAMEDIC was left distraught after her handbag was stolen from an ambulance after a gruelling 10-hour shift.

Hannah Wyndham, from Reading, noticed the black rucksack was missing when she and a colleague parked up outside a hospital.

The young medic is desperate to get her bag back as it's filled with valuables, including her purse.

Shattered Hannah – who works at South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust – had it pinched outside the Royal Berkshire Hospital, in Reading, Berks.

It happened on Tuesday night, but was not caught on CCTV in the ambulance bay.

She said: “This is a very long shot but I had my handbag stolen from the ambulance last night while I was on shift.

“The most likely place was outside the Royal Berkshire Hospital, but I can’t be 100 per cent sure.

“It had my purse and other valuables in it. If anyone finds a little black rucksack lying around anywhere or my purse please contact me.”

She wasn’t even angry about it, she was just heartbroken and upset, 2020 and 2021 is taking its toll.

Her colleague Stephanie Hudson added: “My lovely crew mate Hannah had her bag stolen last night from the front of our ambulance whilst we were working.

“It was taken at some point during our 10 hour night shift.

“Rubbish isn’t it, she wasn’t even angry about it, she was just heartbroken and upset, 2020 and 2021 is taking its toll.

“There are some absolutely heartless people around. Praying some of her belongings turn up.”

Pals offered support online, with one writing on Facebook: “Have they not got CCTV at hospital Hannah?”

She replied: “I’ve asked them to look, waiting to hear back.”

But she then added: “Cameras don’t cover the ambulance bay so they can’t see anything.”

Another fumed: “Scumbags that's so s**t.”

One friend wrote: “Disgusting that someone would steal out of an ambulance.

“I hope you get it back and they get caught.”

Shocked by what happened, one woman wrote: “What is wrong with people.”

Thames Valley Police have been approached for comment.
