A couple from Hemel Hempstead are devastated after a thief broke into their home and stole an external hard-drive filled with irreplaceable photos.

The night before the break in at Cleve Road, Phil Hammond had spend four hours filling the hard-drive with sentimental photos and videos of his 4 month old daughter.

As a keen photographer, he was the only person in the family to have photos and videos of baby Lyla.

Along with the external hard-drive, Phil and his partner Shauna had their laptop, camera and other valuables stolen.

Shauna told Heart losing the hard-drive is the worst:

"We were saying we would have rather they had taken anything else than that because everything else we can replace, that is the most upsetting part, I can't really describe it, its gone"

The couple are still holding out hope that the hard-drive might be returned.

They say it was not worth much in value but for them the photos and videos stored on it were priceless. 

Shauna says:

"She's four moths old and its all the firsts, first pictures of her first videos of when she was born" 

The hard-drive is a silver colour and made by Iomega Ego- it was in its original box when it was stolen.

If anyone has any information on this crime and can help Shauna and Phil get their photos back, contact Herts Police on 101.
