Nine months’ pregnant Charlotte Baker, aged 28, was left stranded on a country lane when a pair of conmen stole her luxury sports car.

Charlotte had pulled over on a country road between Byfield and Boddington in England, when she realised a tyre on her Porsche 911 had a puncture.

While trying to contact her boyfriend, two men in a white van stopped and offered her a hand and one began changing the tyre.

Once he had finished the man pushed past her, jumped into the front seat and drove off behind his friend in the white van.

She was left alone and distressed at the side of the road until an elderly man stopped and offered her a lift.

Miss Baker said: “The shock is starting to fade but now I am just reeling. It’s absolutely disgusting, these men have no morals.

“They couldn’t have cared less about leaving me stranded on a quiet road, even when it was obvious I’m just weeks away from giving birth.

“Afterwards I was trying really hard to keep my feelings down because I didn’t want the stress and shock to send me into premature labour. I was panicking a lot and it was really quite frightening.”

She added: “When they first offered to help I thought, great, that’s really useful. There was nothing that alerted me to what was really going on until he got in the car. I was shouting at him ‘what are you doing?’ but it all happened so quickly.

“It’s shattered my confidence in people. I’m usually a trusting person but I feel like such an idiot for being conned like this. It’s disgraceful.”

Charlotte, whose baby boy is due on September 22, runs an alloy wheel repair business with her boyfriend Brad Dixon.
