The break-in at East Heddon, Northumberland, was reported this morning - just hours before the couple were due to marry.

Sergeant Mick Quinn of Northumbria Police said, "The people who stole these flowers will have been well aware they were to be used for a wedding, and to steal them is completely heartless and thoughtless".
