Plea over children's stolen ice hockey kits

The mother of two junior ice hockey players in Nottingham is urging anyone with information about two stolen sports kits to come forward.

Carly Widziernikow, from Bulwell, said the family's car was broken into overnight on Sunday and a goal minder's kit and a player's kit were stolen.

Without the kits, worth about £1,000, Ellis Ricci, seven, and brother Aston, six, cannot train or play in matches.

The boys' team, the Sherwood Sabres, may forfeit games without key players.

"The kits are no good to anyone, they can maybe sell the skates on but nothing else as it is so specialised," said Ms Widziernikow.

Both boys were due to take part in a two-day ice hockey training camp in Sheffield after Christmas but will not be able to go without their kits.

"We're asking everyone to keep their eyes out for the equipment on second hand sites, car boot sales or if they have been dumped anywhere," added Ms Widziernikow.
