A suspected grave thief wanted for stealing 51 red roses has been caught on CCTV.

The flowers had left by a grieving husband just one day after he laid his wife to rest - one for each year they had spent together.

Security footage from the Robin Hood Cemetery in Solihull shows a woman walking through the gardens, before stopping and picking up the armful of roses Maurice Powell had left for his wife Sandra.
