Boy, five, devastated after ‘scooter theft’ at Barking Station
A young boy has been left devastated following the apparent theft of his scooter after he boarded a train at Barking Station.
The five-year-old accidentally left the toy on platform one as he got on the Barking to Gospel Oak line with his father.
The dad rushed back to the railway station in Station Parade but the scooter was gone, police said.
Today police issued photographs of a woman they would like to speak to in connection with the suspected theft on October 6.
Pc Roger Andrews said: “This theft has left a young child without their scooter and understandably very upset.
