"Sometime between June 28 and July 19, someone stole the catalytic converter from my disabled car.

"I am now confined to my home, because the bus service in my village is infrequent and taxis are to expensive to get me where I need to be.

"Also because I’m at high risk from covid it’s not really a option for me to take any public transport.

"It’s going to cost me a lot of money to replace the catalytic converter and also the exhaust system and to be honest I think I will be throwing good money after bad because I think that these scumbags will just come back for a second time.

"They have no respect for the problems they cause people and especially someone like me, a disabled pensioner."
