A family has appealed for the return of memory cards which were taken when a camera and camcorder were stolen during a raid at a Pentney home.

The memory cards contained irreplaceable images captured seconds after the birth of Mollie Meyer as well as video footage of her christening on July 31.

Dad Robert Meyer and mum Kirsty Sopp are devastated the images have been stolen from their Abbey Road.

The culprits smashed a window sometime between 2.18pm and 2.55pm on Saturday, August 27 when Mr Meyer had gone to King’s Lynn.

They stole a Canon camcorder, Sony digital camera and cash given to baby Mollie as christening gifts. Also stolen was a jewellery which belonged to Miss Sopp.

Mr Meyer said the camera contained around 500 pictures.  Some of which were taken by hospital staff seconds after Mollie was born.

Friends and family have stepped in to give the couple some of their pictures but Mr Meyer said these cannot replace all their own images.

The couple had also taken video footage of Mollie which they planned to keep as a lasting memory of her development over the first year.

“Kirsty is devastated. She is still trying to come to terms with it,” said Mr Meyer who has appealed for the return of the memory cards.

Officers from Norfolk police have asked anyone with information to call King’s Lynn detectives on 101.
