HEARTLESS thieves have raided a few plots in Thurnscoe Cemetery - stealing ornaments and solar lights from graves.

Sharon and Jamie Depledge found ornaments and solar lights had been taken from where Sharon's mother and her sister-in-law's mother's ashes are buried.

Both plots had also had aluminium pots for flowers stolen.

Sharon said: "I'm not just concerned about my mother's plot I'm concerned about the other relatives. It's just upsetting, we even thought they might be taking the pots for scrap metal."
