She had just returned from visiting her daughter, who is studying in Newcastle.

Lisa, who is from Melton Mowbray, said: "I had parked at the station because went to Newcastle to see my daughter who is studying at university there.

"When I first came back to my car I was in my own world and I only noticed that the back door was gone. Then I walked around my car and noticed broken glass and that both doors and the bonnet had been taken, too.

"They took everything and left me with a shell, which has caused massive inconvenience and expense for me.”
