Thieves return urn containing mother's ashes after daughter's plea to get them ... trends now
A woman who was left heartbroken when thieves stole her mother's ashes is 'beaming' after the urn was returned to her garden following her plea on social media.
Sophie Edmonson, 42, was distraught when burglars arrived in a white van and broke into a garden office on her farm in the village of Wicken, Northamptonshire.
Police said the robbers, who broke in while the family were sleeping nearby, then took off jewellery and other sentimental items, including handwritten notes written by her dead mother and a USB with bedtime stories recorded for her grandchildren.
The carved wooden urn, decorated with leaves, mice and flowers, had been designed by Ms Edmonson's mother, Hannah Aquarone, before she died from pancreatic cancer in 2017, aged 65.
On Monday morning, however, the missing container was miraculously found by the family under some scaffolding on the farm. The relieved daughter told the BBC: 'I'm literally beaming from ear to ear, I honestly wasn't holding out any hope.
