Gavin Hayes is 82. He lives alone in a council flat in Rotorua and is by all means a very trusting, caring man.

But it's that kindness which has seen him lost the will to live after two teenage girls stole his car - twice.

Gavin was left with no reason to get out of bed, as bronchitis prevents him from even walking to the local shops.

But this isn't just a sad story, in fact it's a story which does go some way to restoring dignity to a man, who through no fault of his own, has lost it.

Watch Kate King’s report.
