Mum-of-two Lisa Browett from Fulwood was preparing to launch her fast-food venture The Pattie Shack.

On Saturday (16 September) evening into the early hours of Sunday morning the trailer, kitted out for around £8,000, was taken from a driveway in Lea.

Ms Browett, 37, had planned to use the trailer to serve full English breakfasts and Caribbean food at lunchtime.

She said: “I’m a single mum so this was my only income source for now and I’ll really struggle after this.

“Even if someone has taken it and they dump it – with all the appliances taken out – I would be happy with that. I just want it back.

“I was made redundant in July so we had been working towards finding a spot to trade from.”
