A COUPLE lost all their wedding photographs when burglars stole a laptop from their home.

Chris and Penny Elliott were at work on Friday, October 3 when intruders broke into their home in Crown Avenue, Christchurch.

A silver HP laptop, as well as a 37-inch LCD television and more than 150 DVDs, were stolen.

The laptop contained about 60 photographs from the couple's wedding, which took place on September 20.

Mr Elliott said: "We will be able to get some of the photos back from family and friends, but the photographs of us exchanging vows and the family pictures we will probably never get back.

"We never had a photographer, we found someone to take pictures on our own camera, and we went on holiday so copied the pictures onto the laptop."

The burglary happened between 5.40am and 4.50pm. The television was bought with vouchers the couple asked for as wedding gifts.

Mr Elliott said: "Someone must have followed our movements; they would have known we would not be there between those times."

Pc Mark Ambrose, investigating, said: "I would like to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area between these times.

"I would also like to appeal for any information about where the stolen items are now. Have you been offered similar items for sale at a price that seems too good to be true?"
