Claire Fletcher, 37, will have to miss the sport’s marquee event unless she finds the kit.

The PhD student was leaving the West Hampstead end of Goldhurst Terrace to visit her parents when she accidentally drove away from kit including a black helmet, roller skates and team kit. She competes for the Royal Windsor Roller Girls A Team, Who Dares Windsor.

Claire told the Ham&High: “If I don’t get them back, I just won’t be able to compete, As a PhD student, I’m not exactly rolling in it!”

Claire’s kit. left in a black wheelie bag, had vanished by the time a friend checked outside her house.
