A driver says she is “absolutely gutted” after her first car was stolen while she was visiting a friend.
Danielle Rolls discovered her beloved white Ford Fiesta had been taken from Billet Road, Chadwell Heath, at 8.30am on Wednesday.
“I was absolutely shocked, I came downstairs and was confused it wasn’t there,” explained Danielle, who had parked the car on the street outside at 6pm on Tuesday evening.
“I’ve never had anything nicked from me, let alone anything that meant so much to me.”
The 26-year-old, who lives with her mum, brother and three sisters in Romford, had owned the car for just a year, and was still paying off the £15,000 vehicle on finance.
“It’s the first car I’d bought myself, so I’m absolutely gutted,” added Danielle, who had locked the car and had both keys with her. “I hope that someone will have seen it, I really want my car back, though I don’t know what form or shape it will be in.”
Danielle has now returned to her job as an adminstrator in Romford after the Christmas break, but admits she has struggled since the shock theft.
“It’s caused me so much grief, so much stress, I don’t feel ready to work,” she said.
“I worry every day, thinking about someone just coming and taking it – it’s so wrong.
“I don’t understand how anyone can do it at all, it’s absolutely disgusting.”
Police are investigating and enquiries continue.
