A new bride has had her wedding photos stolen following the theft of her handbag.

Police at Strand Road in Derry are appealing for information about the theft of the handbag from a car.

Constable Tracy Flynn, the investigating officer, said that the bag, a wedding present, contained items of a sentimental value

She added: “On November 29 a vehicle was broken into in the Celtic Park car park area of the city and a black ‘Michael Kors’ leather handbag containing multiple items was stolen.

“The bags’ contents included a USB stick with 700 wedding photos from the owner’s recent wedding. The USB is quite distinctive in that it is in a small wooden box with the name of a photographic company engraved on it. The USB also has the company name printed on it.

“The ‘Michael Kors’ handbag was a wedding present from the woman’s husband and it also contained vouchers gifted to the couple from guests.”
