SICK thieves stole a char­ity col­lec­tion box for car­a­van blaze tod­dler Emmy Tay­lor.

The heart­less rob­bers broke into Flint Town United Football Club in North Wales in the early hours of the morn­ing and took an es­ti­mated £400.

Al­co­hol and a com­puter were also stolen and doors were smashed at the non-for-profit community club.

Flint Town man­ager Paul Davis said: “To take the char­ity box for lit­tle Emmy is the low­est of the low. It was clear who the box was for so to steal it was sick.”

Emmy suf­fered se­vere burns to her face and body fol­low­ing the hor­rific fire in June of last year, which killed her grand­fa­ther, Robert Tay­lor, 58, and un­cle An­drew, 26.

Mum Laura said: “I think it’s dis­gust­ing. To steal a char­ity box is just wrong.”
