A WOMAN had a book of precious memories stolen in a car break-in.
Nicola Purcell had parked outside a friend's house in Clifton Road, Marsh on Friday night.
She went inside with her daughter Charlotte to fetch a friend and some other children to take them to a bonfire party.
Minutes later, Miss Purcell heard the alarm of the Land Rover Freelander, which she had borrowed from her parents, go off.
She went out to find the back window had been smashed.
One-year-old Charlotte's baby seat had been taken, along with Miss Purcell's own handbag containing cash, cards and keys.
Charlotte's black Mothercare baby bag was also taken.
Inside was a red book, which charted all the events in Charlotte's life so far.
Miss Purcell, who lives in Lindley, said: "I don't care about the keys or cards, I can replace them. I just want that book back as I am never going to be able to get another."
Miss Purcell said she thinks the thief may have dumped the baby bag.
She said: "I hope someone will see it and my address and doctor's name is inside, so they can return it to either of those places."
