A Fife dad has released CCTV footage of thieves stealing a £10,000 caravan he bought to give his autistic son a safe holiday haven.
Steven Wilson is offering a £1,000 reward after he saved up to buy the 20ft-long caravan which includes a special “safe” room for Gavin, 11.
The mechanic only bought the van eight months ago and he and his family had only used it twice before it was stolen.
The CCTV images show how, in the space of just six minutes, a gang of men in a 4×4 push the caravan from its parking place in Townhill, hitch it to their vehicle, and drive off.
The raid, which happened shortly after 3am on March 24, has left the family devastated.
Steven, from nearby Cowdenbeath, said: “We saved for a long time to buy the right caravan for us.”
Inspector Ian Stephen from Cowdenbeath Police Station said: “This is a distinctive caravan, it is 20 feet (6.35metres) long, white and with a blue stripe.
“If anyone sees it, we’d ask them to contact us.”
