A King's Lynn woman has been left devestated after a thief stole her handbag which contained her dead son's favourite toy soldier.

It happened while she was laying flowers on his grave in Gayton Road Cemetary over the weekend - she'd left the bag in her car and someone smashed in to steal it while she was gone.

If you know the thief who was wearing a black hoodie with a red hood, you can call police on 101 or crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Dog walkers and other people who may be walking in the area are also being asked to keep an eye out for the bag as it could have been dumped nearby.

It's black, leather look, with zip pockets on each side. It also contained a purse and mobile phone.
