Thief snatches vital medicines from car in Carlisle

A bag containing strong painkillers and a drug used to treat chronic lung disease has been stolen from a car in Carlisle.

The medicines were snatched from a Rover 45 parked on Prescott Road.

Police were alerted to the theft late morning yesterday.

Painkiller Tramadol and Tiotropium, used to open the patient's airways to make it easier to get air in and out of the lungs, were taken.

The drugs could be harmful if taken by someone who does not need them.

If the medicines are found, they should be handed in to the police or a pharmacy.

Anyone who saw the theft or has information about it should call police on 101.
