Laughing gas bottles stolen from Bridlington hospital
Twelve bottles of "potentially dangerous" nitrous oxide gas have been stolen from a Bridlington hospital.
The gas bottles were stolen from the Bridlington and District Hospital on Bessingby Road at about 10:40 BST, said Humberside Police.
The blue bottles are marked as medical nitrous oxide, a substance commonly known as laughing gas.
It is used as an anaesthetic by the hospital and is potentially dangerous if misused, said the force.
When inhaled, it can lead to death as oxygen is effectively pushed out by the gas.
Officers are appealing for information and said the bottles should be returned to the hospital or handed in at a police station.
