Two men have been arrested after a nurse was burgled while she was at work treating COVID-19 patients.


The dedicated nurse was on shift at Darlington Memorial Hospital when the incident happened in Neville Road, Darlington, at about 5.30am on Saturday (March 28).


A series of items were taken from the victim’s car and home, including her road bike and uniform.


A 28-year-old and a 30-year-old have since been arrested on suspicion of burglary and a theft from a motor vehicle. They are currently in police custody.


The nurse’s road bike, motorbike leather and helmet, have also been recovered by officers.
Detective Sergeant Claire Callaghan said: “NHS staff are selflessly trying to combat the coronavirus so to target a nurse who is working tirelessly to help the public, is particularly despicable.


“We would like to thank the public for their help in this case and are happy to report we have since recovered the nurse’s bike, which will be returned.


“We would also appeal to the public to make sure their homes and any vehicles are secure.”
