Plea to return footage of newborn after Faversham theft

Thieves who stole cameras containing video and pictures of the first days of a couple's newborn baby have been urged to post the memory cards to police.

A video camera was taken with a laptop, a Fuji camera and two Nintendo DS consoles after burglars broke in through the back door of a Kent house.

Pc Steve Hobbs said he wanted to appeal to the offenders' better nature.

He said the photos and footage, stolen on Saturday from the property in Faversham, were "irreplaceable".

Pc Hobbs said: "I want to appeal to the better nature of those who carried out this burglary to hand in the memory cards from both of the cameras.

"They contain photos of the couple's holiday and footage of the first few days of their new baby's life and although they have little monetary value are irreplaceable to the victims.

"The burglars could not have known what was on the camera but I would urge them to do the right thing and post them to us."

Appealing for information, Pc Hobbs said the burglary took place at a house in Hogbens Hill, Selling, between 1500 BST and 1900 BST.
