Faulty appliance is stolen from outside Lyme home

A CHEEKY thief has stolen a washing machine left outside a Lyme Regis house for collection by a repair man.

The faulty appliance was taken from a garden path at King’s Way at around 12.30pm yesterday (Wednesday).

Its bemused owner watched as a man in a silver or white transit, with a child on board, loaded up the machine and drove off.

Community Beat Manager PC Richard Winward said they were keen to speak to anyone who saw the incident.

“Perhaps the loser put Vanish in his last wash,” he added.

Anyone with information should call him on 01305 222222.
