A distraught Gidea Park pensioner is offering a cash reward to anyone who can return his stolen wheelchair-adapted car.  

Alfred Sibbons, 78, said his silver Kia Sedona was taken on March 1 at around 6.30pm from his driveway on Fairholme Avenue.

The seven-seater car had been adapted to fit a wheelchair for his 77-year-old wife, Pamela Sibbons, who suffers from advanced Parkinson’s disease and lives at a care home nearby.  

Alfred said the car is worth “not a lot of money”, but has his wife's Blue Badge inside.  

Its registration is YG60 ELC and he is willing to hand over around £100 to anyone who finds it.  

“I have no life without the car and I can’t pick my wife up as her wheelchair is adapted for our car.  

“It’s a total nightmare and I'm really frustrated.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police via 101 quoting reference CAD 5854/01Mar.
