AN NHS worker's caravan and his entire belongings stolen whilst he was working a night shift at the John Radcliffe hospital.

Kevin Slack, who works for the Blood Donor Centre at the John Radcliffe, returned from his nightshift on the morning of January 18 to find his home and entire belongings had been stolen.

Mr Slack was left with nothing other than the clothes he was currently wearing - his NHS uniform.

The luxury caravan, that Mr Slack bought after his wife died five years ago, was located behind The Highwayman Hotel and pub off the Banbury Road in Kidlington.

CCTV was said to show four men in a white van with face coverings stealing the caravan.

The robbery was said to take just 12 minutes at 1am.

As soon as Mr Slack returned to find his caravan missing, he called the police to report the incident.

Sarah Griffiths, whose husband works alongside Mr Slack, said: “Everything has gone, everything he owned, all his memories.

“He was left with the clothes on his back, just his uniform.

“They’ve taken his entire life.”

Mrs Griffiths said that the NHS worker had plans to retire from his job at the hospital in a few years so he could move with the caravan to live nearer to his children in Cornwall.

She added: “No one knows how he is doing right now.

“He seemed alright but in a bit of shock.

“He’s such a happy bloke all the time, always laughing, near retirement, he has had a bit of bad luck in life, but always, always happy."

This is not the first time Mr Slack has been stolen from, however.

Previously he had a large 'American canoe' that was on the side of the canal stolen and a bottle of gas stolen.

Mrs Griffiths said: "Somebody must have been watching him, especially as they took it all at 1 o'clock in the morning."

Mr Slack’s friend said she did not think he had any insurance for the caravan.

She added: “It is outside a pub, usually busy, and other people living there, you don’t expect it to happen.”

Mrs Griffiths urged any local businesses who could have CCTV image of the van leaving the premises to come forward.

Thames Valley Police received a report of a theft at around 7.45am on Monday 18 January.
