Mum's appeal over lost memories

Car containing camera with pictures of terminally ill son's wedding - weeks before he died - stolen in Upper Denford at the weekend.

A mum from West Berkshire - who's final memories of her son were stolen at the weekend - is making a desperate appeal for help.

Penny from Denford Lane in Upper Denford contacted Heart after her car was stolen - containing the camera with the photos taken before he passed away last month.

Sometime between 7pm on Saturday and 8.15am on Sunday (16/5), offenders stole the blue Mazda RX7, containing a handbag. The engine cut out after a short distance due to the immobiliser and the thieves abandoned the car, taking a handbag. The car was later recovered and returned to the owner.

The handbag contained a mobile phone, keys and a camera containing sentimental photographs.

“If anyone has any information that could help us to return this to the victim please contact police”.
