HEARTLESS thieves have driven away with Rotherham Hospice’s delivery van.

The vehicle — which is used for essential deliveries and collections by the charity — was taken this morning at about 5.20am.

The white Luton van bearing the hospice’s distinct artwork had the registration number DN62 EYA.

Hospice spokeswoman Emma Birch said the van was taken from the drive of a building at the Broom Road site.

She said that staff are angry at the theft which has left them without a means of transport.

She added: “It is used for retail activities like collections of furniture.

“The van is used on a day-to-day basis.

“The theft will have a massive impact as we cannot now carry out collections or donations.”
