A MUM has been left heartbroken after thieves stole a unique wreath from her son’s grave at Newport Pagnell Cemetery.

Lynn Harbi’s son, David Law, was murdered at his home in Walnut Tree on September 5 last year by Suresh Nahar, who was later jailed for 20 years.

In February David’s brother Adam ordered a floral tribute to place on the grave in the shape of a can of Carling complete with flashing lights.

The wreath is between two and three feet tall and made up of artificial flowers on a metal frame.

However, between 8pm on Monday, September 17 and 5pm on Wednesday, September 19, the tribute was stolen after thieves cut the wire leading to its solar panel and carried it away.

Lynn, 57, said: “At first I didn’t know what to think. I phoned Adam and my two daughters to see if they had taken it. When they said no I knew it had been taken.

“We’ve had a terrible year. After the court case and now this, you just don’t expect this to happen, for someone to take something from a grave, it’s heartless.”

Lynn is now appealing for anyone with information to call Thames Valley Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.

She said: “The people who did this won’t have any guilt and won’t give themselves up so I am urging anyone who knows anything about this to tell the police.

“If the person is reading this I ask them to please return it, even if it is in the dead of night. We just want it back.”
