The mother of a woman suffering from cerebral palsy who has been left without her voice after thieves stole a communication aid, says her daughter is heartbroken.
The thieves broke into their Leicestershire home and stole the device, which is worth around £9,000.
Despite the cost to buy it, Natalie Wood says it's worthless to anybody who doesn't need it.
Thieves also stole a handful of euros and a games console. In the process they trashed the bedrooms and trampled over the beds.
