Officers are appealing for information and are asking anyone who may have any information to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Paul Whitehead said; “This is a truly appalling theft, not only to steal from an emergency services vehicle but to do so while they are helping people involved in a collision is absolutely disgraceful.

“I would appeal to anyone that has any information whatsoever that could help us trace the person responsible to contact police.”


John Taylor, spokesperson for Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service said; “It beggars belief that someone could steal from a fire service vehicle, particularly when its crew were busy rescuing someone trapped in a car crash. If anyone has any information to help police find the culprit please contact them.”

Anyone with information can contact police by calling 101 and quoting log number LC-20130205-1222.
