A couple are devastated after a teddy bought in memory of their baby boy was stolen by heartless thieves in a break-in at their Coventry home. Faye and her partner Gary bought two teddies after their son Max tragically died soon after birth.

One was kept at his grave and another was stored in a safe at the couple's home in the city. But the safe was stolen by burglars during a brazen daytime raid on Friday, November 24.

Faye posted footage of the shocking break-in on social media in the hope it leads to the teddy bear's return. "We can replace most things but they took our safe with a lot of sentimental items in, one being a teddy we got when we lost our son Max," she said.

"It’s a little brown teddy. We have one and Max has one with him. This can never be replaced and we are hoping the power of social media can help us.

"Please can you share and keep a look out when you go for a walk around Coventry? These items are no value to these low life scum bags and have probably been dumped somewhere."

Faye and Gary were both at work when the break-in happened at around 11.30am. They immediately rang police when they saw the raid unfold on Ring cameras installed at their home.

Two masked men can be seen - one dressed all in all black the other wearing a high-vis vest - in the back garden scoping out the property before using weapons to smash through the patio doors. The culprits then stole a number of items, including the safe, before returning to a black Mercedes parked in front of the house and manned by a third male.

Faye said it had been 'an emotional few days' since the burglary, but said she and her partner took comfort from the fact their dog, which was home at the time, was not hurt. A West Midlands Police spokesperson said: "We are investigating following a burglary at an address in Coombe Park Road, Coventry, on 24 November.

"At around 11.30am, intruders entered the house and stole a number of items before leaving the scene. Officers are now carrying out CCTV and house to house enquiries to identify and track the suspects.

"Anyone with further information can contact us via Live Chat or 101 quoting crime number 20/1022909/23."
