A nurse working a night shift was horrified to find her car had been stolen from the hospital car park when she clocked off.
Aimee Price, 30, had completed a gruelling shift at Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, when she discovered her black Ford Kuga had been stolen overnight.
Heartless thieves left mum-of-two Aimee, who has worked tirelessly throughout the coronavirus pandemic, stranded and unable to get home.
She said: “I parked my car up in a marked bay just before 7 and when I went out the following morning it was just gone.
“I was in total shock. I’m still in shock now.
“We work hard to have nice things just for it to be ripped away from us like this. It’s just a car and it can be replaced, but I am so angry.”

Aimee shared images of the stolen car on social media appealing for help, but feared it was “long gone” after reports of similar incidents across the town in recent weeks.
Many were quick to react with disgust at thieves targeting a hospital car park.
Karen Hamilton wrote: “Unbelievable. You work as nurse on a night shift in a pandemic and someone steals your car.”
Gaynor Smith added: “This is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe people stoop to this level.
“They have no respect and no thought for anyone but themselves. It really makes me so angry.
“You were working all night, caring for people who are ill and these people spent the night waiting for the opportunity to steal your car.
“I’d love to hear they have been caught and have a hefty sentence.”
South Wales Police said in a statement: “We can confirm the theft of a Ford Kuga from the hospital car park.
“The owner – a member of staff at hospital – reported it stolen just before 8am on 2 nd December, 2021.”
Police Sergeant Sara Jehu added: “The owner of the vehicle had just finished a demanding night shift supporting the community through her role within the hospital, to leave and discover her vehicle had been stolen.
“I urge the local communities to come forward with any information to support the ongoing investigation to identify those responsible.”
