Indie band The Social Leftover's emotional appeal for return of stolen laptop containing charity single

A band who spent five months recording a charity single have made an emotional appeal for the return of a stolen laptop containing the track.

The Social Leftover began working on the song last autumn and it was just weeks from completion.

But they face having to start from scratch after a laptop containing the only copy was swiped during a raid at a recording studio.

Bosses at the Vibe Music Project, based in Champness Hall in Rochdale, found their door kicked-in and the Macbook Pro missing on Tuesday last week.

A 33-year-old man has since been arrested on suspicion of burglary and has been bailed pending further enquiries.
