Memory card contains only pictures of baby’s first 12 months.

THE owner of a broken mobile phone thought to have been stolen from the Queen’s Theatre in Barnstaple has made an emotional appeal for its safe return.

The damaged white Xperia Arc is unusable but the memory card contains irreplaceable family photographs.

Owner Carrie Davison appealed for whoever took it to have a heart and return it to the theatre or the Gazette offices in Old Station Road, no questions asked.

“The memory card contains the only photographs of my baby’s first year and beyond and photographs of people who are sadly no longer with us,” she said.

“I will be absolutely willing to let whoever took it keep the phone on return of the memory card.
