The Bristol-based CLIC Sargent charity that helps children with cancer has been hit twice within a week by fuel thieves who drilled into the fuel tanks of their two Volkswagen vans, clearly marked “For Children with Cancer”, draining off a total of £400 worth of fuel and causing over £1,000 worth of damage.

Jeremy Lune, CLIC’s head of trading told the Daily Mail: “The vans are clearly labelled so whoever did this knew they were stealing from a charity that deals with very sick children.” Fuel theft, like metal theft, has increased as prices have soared, with a worrying number of thieves, and those who handle goods they know to be stolen, not caring who gets hurt or even killed in the process.
