A 38-year-old woman from Letchworth has been left homeless after her caravan was stolen from a layby near Baldock – and police have today appealed for witnesses.

The white caravan was locked and secure in the layby on the A505 between the Wallington roundabout and the Weston Tunnel when it was stolen between 7pm on Monday, December 19, and 2am the next morning.

The victim, who is now of no fixed abode, lost many of her personal belongings in the theft – which is thought to have involved someone removing the caravan and towing it away in the direction of London Road in Baldock.

PC Chris Brown, who is investigating, said: “A woman is now homeless due to the extremely selfish actions of others, so if you do have any information I would please urge you to come forward and speak to me. Any detail, however insignificant it seems, could prove crucial.

“I would be very keen to speak to anyone who may have seen any suspicious behaviour on the A505, or a caravan being towed on the surrounding roads between the times stated.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Brown on the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference G4/16/1086.
