A Coventry family had all their children's Christmas presents stolen during a break-in.
The Todd family had been buying presents since September to spread the cost, but thieves took them last Tuesday, along with money put aside for the funeral of the children's grandmother.
Naomi Todd said:
"It was going to be a hard enough Christmas for the kids as it's the first without their nan as she passed away in March."
"The thieves stole a substantial amount of money but why did they have to take the presents too? They were still in the carrier bags and it was obvious they were children's toys. They should feel disgusted at themselves for stooping so low,"
