Father’s ashes taken in car theft

A couple have been left devastated after thieves stole their car and the ashes of the woman’s father. The couple had travelled to a friend’s house because it was raining so hard they ran inside leaving presents and the urn containing the ashes in the car. The husband said his wife’s father “travels with us to all significant family gatherings so that he can share in the occasion.” He added,” we appeal  to the thieves to contact the police with the location of the ashes so that we can have my wife’s dad back with us.”

A police spokesman said: “We’re desperately looking to find this man’s car and his wife’s fathers ashes as well as the thieves that stole it.”
