Boost for mum left terrified after thieves stole family car as she fed her baby
THE mother of a nine-week-old baby left terrified by shameless thieves who stole the family car as she lovingly fed her daughter has received a welcome lift.
Today, Kirsty Glasson, 26, will take her daughter, Olivia, out for much needed stroll after Bambinos of Grimsby Road, Cleethorpes, paid for the next day delivery of buggy parts which were in the boot of their stolen car.
It comes as a man, 25 and a woman, 23, were arrested in connection with the theft after the car was found on Durban Road, Grimsby – without the £600 pram parts in the boot.
Kirsty said: “It is a huge weight off my mind, without the car and the buggy parts I have been stuck in the house since it happened. I can’t wait just to get her out, it isn’t fair for her to be cooped up in the house all day.”

Kirsty had been feeding Olivia at 4.30am on Sunday at her Peterhouse Road home, Grimsby, when thieves smashed the front door window with a brick, reached in to take the keys and drove off in the family’s Vauxhall Astra.
The arrival of the Italian-made pram wheels and chassis is a much needed boost for the new mum, who is now too scared to feed her daughter downstairs during the night.
Kirsty, who lives at home with fiance lorry-driver, Chris Westerman, 37, continued: “As soon as it gets dark I take Olivia upstairs and I stay there so I don’t have to be downstairs. I am too scared to be down there, every little noise makes me jump. It is horrible.”
Owner of Bambinos, which has been going 10 years, Lesley Boulter, 59, paid the £24 delivery charge for next-day delivery from Italy.
He said: “We explained what had happened to our supplier and asked them to get it sent over within 24 hours. Kirsty is our customer and we look after all our customers. She was stuck and we wanted to help, hopefully this will make a huge difference to the family.”
Kirsty added: “The theft of the car was bad, but I was always more concerned about the pram, it was Olivia’s pushchair and it feels like they have stolen from her.”
Police are appealing for witnesses or people with information to contact them on 101, quoting incident number 147 of February 24.
