East Durham Trust charity has been providing food parcels to struggling families during the coronavirus outbreak.
A charity has suffered a devastating blow when a stolen digger was ploughed into a container holding donated food supplies.
East Durham Trust, which operates a food bank, launched an emergency response to help vulnerable families in Easington during the covid-19 crisis.
But the Peterlee-based charity was targeted over the weekend during an attempted break-in that saw an onsite digger stolen, before crashing into a shipping container.
The trust says essential food items and eggs were lost during the incident meaning a reduction in the amount of food at a time when it is most needed.
