An eight-year-old boy who had to undergo emergency surgery was ‘devastated’ to learn his prized toy Ferrari was stolen while he was in hospital.

Chaulden Junior School pupil Matthew Shayler had been playing in the red replica vehicle with friends when he suddenly became unwell, and mum Elle, 38, rushed him to hospital.

Poorly Matthew had an operation to remove his appendix – a procedure which has left him in some pain and unable to attend school for a week.
