The prosthetic limbs of Victoria Milligan have been stolen after she left her car to head to a nearby restaurant in western London's Fulham, according to media reports.
The 45-year old has decided to appeal to the thieves to return her artificial limbs which she said "are very expensive but are totally useless to anyone but me."
"I can't really work or exercise, I've got my everyday leg, but it's nothing compared to my blade. It's so frustrating, it takes three months to have them remade," Milligan was quoted by The Guardian as saying.
