"It’s affected me badly," said Lindsay, who also works as a door supervisor. "We have nowhere to live, we have been staying at a women’s house who saw my plea on Facebook.

"My Leicester A&E contract has ended and I'm finding it difficult to find work as all my ambulance certificates of 17 years have gone.

"Every piece of ID I had is gone. All my clothes and personal belongings were on that bus. My ambulance uniforms and security uniforms boots - all gone."

Lindsay believe the theft was well organised as it was done while she was working shifts at a hospital in Leicester.
