An aunt is appealing for information about her niece's mobility scooter which has gone missing in Harleston.

Victoria Panton Bacon said the scooter, which belongs to 11-year-old Pollyanna Hope, went missing from outside Budgens on Monday, January 23.

Pollyanna has a prosthetic leg but still has difficulty walking and the scooter is a vital bit of equipment for her.

She had left the scooter outside the shop while she was inside and forgot to take it home with her.

When Mrs Panton Bacon went to look for it, it had disappeared.
