Nottinghamshire Police have issued an alert in the Retford area after a van containing prescription medicines was stolen on Wednesday (2 November).

The red Peugeot van with the wording 'Peter James Chemist' on the livery was stolen from Hallcroft Road at around 12noon.

The driver was delivering prescriptions in the street when a man got into the van and drove off. The van has not yet been found.

The list of medicines contained within the van has now been confirmed as:

Quetlapine MR, Fluoxetine, Simvastatin, Pioglitazone, Lansoprazole (two packages), Gliciazide, Fosinopril, Ferrous sulphate, Tadalafil, Sodium chloride eye drops, Quinine sulphate, Pravastatin, Irbesartan, Gaviscon Advance, Aspirin, Alendronic acid, Adcal D3-tabs.

All are in small packages or containers.

As with all medicines, they should not be consumed by anyone other then the individual to whom they have been prescribed. Parents and carers should be particularly aware of the theft and advise their children not to touch medicines, but to inform an adult should they find them.

Anyone who has seen either the van or has found any of the packages is urged to telephone Nottinghamshire Police immediately on 999, quoting incident 257 of 2 November.

Alternatively, they can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
