Watch: holiday for carers ruined by thieves

Sentimental photos stolen from young carers

A group of young carers, on a holiday in Manchester organised to give them a rest, have had their possessions stolen.

Kayla Laisby lost a photo of her and her dad, who has terminal cancer, when they were younger:

I want the people to be found so that they can understand how much us as carers have been through anyway. And now for them to do that to us, no regard for us whatsoever... and now everything's gone."

– KAYLA LAISBY, young carer
