Limb thieves must step up

Sunday Mirror - - SAIRAKHAN -

We all know moped gangs are heart­less. But how much of a scum­bag do you have to be to heap more mis­ery on a woman who has al­ready suf­fered some of the worst blows fate can deal? OK, when they made off with Victoria Mil­li­gan’s case the thieves didn’t know it con­tained her pros­thetic legs. But they must by now be aware from the news cov­er­age that Victoria, 45, didn’t just lose a limb in a hor­rific boat ac­ci­dent four years ago. She also lost her hus­band Nick and her eight-year-old daugh­ter Emily. Some­how she man­aged to re­build her life and works as a per­sonal trainer. Ex­cept she can’t work with­out the stolen limbs. I don’t ex­pect the thieves to go to a po­lice sta­tion and con­fess. But if they had a shred of hu­man­ity they’d have left their haul some­where it could be found by now.
