Andy Turner: Burglars 'lowest of the low'

Olympic athlete Andy Turner says he's "devastated" after burglars ransacked his home in Nottinghamshire while he was at his mother's funeral.

The sprint hurdler discovered the break-in at the family home in Hucknall after returning from the wake. Thieves took his mobile phone, his laptop and his car, although that has now been found dumped in the Bilborough area of Nottingham.

Mr Turner says he's lost some irreplaceable photos of his mother Yvonne who died suddenly after suffering a stroke.
