A couple who were due to go on their honeymoon just days after their wedding have had to postpone their holiday after having their caravan stolen.
Jo and Mick Curtis, of Jennett’s Park, were due to travel to Brittany in France early on Tuesday morning. But their Abbey Freestyle 540 caravan was stolen from outside the estate’s Peacock Inn, Peacock Lane, on Monday evening while the pair enjoyed a drink.
The newly-weds got married in their hometown of Scunthorpe on Saturday and picked up their caravan from a farm in Barkham, where they kept it, ahead of their planned trip.
Mrs Curtis, 60, said: “I asked the owner if we could leave it outside and she said it was fine.
“We went to have a drink in the pub and my husband looked out at about 9.45pm and it was still there, but when I checked about half an hour later it was gone.
“It had been hitched off as our car was still there.
“There were quite a few people around so someone must have seen something.”
The caravan was white, with a black stripe on each side.
Mrs Curtis added: “We bought the caravan new in 2008 and used it for many holidays.
“We’ve been around the country in it and to Germany.”
A police spokeswoman said: “The incident is being investigated as a theft and we are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
“Anyone with information should call PC Katie Ali on 101.”
