She said: "I'm not sure whether they had followed me from the car park or something.

"How can they do that to someone just looking after people?.

"I've had a horrible day because it had my baby's [red] car seat in the back and I have no car to get to work. They should have seen it was a family car, for God's sake."

Dorcas's bank cards and driving licence were stolen along with her purse. Her car was parked in the car park off Cliftonville.

Anyone who has information on the thefts can call police on 101. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
