Thieves have stolen my WHOLE gar­den

West Lothian Courier - - News - Courier reporter

A mum has told how she woke up to find brazen thieves had stolen her gar­den.

Sue Scorer (30), from Liv­ingston, had all her ar­ti­fi­cial grass taken as she slept on Satur­day, May 5.

And the shame­less thieves even moved an eight-foot tram­po­line to swipe the grass.

She said her two boys Aaron (8) and Char­lie (4) have been left dev­as­tated by the theft.

Sue said:“I woke on Sun­day morn­ing and was wash­ing my hands when I looked out my win­dow and saw the tram­po­line on the other side of the gar­den.

“I opened the win­dow to see what was go­ing on and saw all the grass was gone.

“I thought I was dream­ing, I couldn’t be­lieve it.”

Sue, a Slim­ming World con­sul­tant, has lived in the house for six years and had the turf put down in her front and back gar­den al­most four year ago - at a cost of £3000 - so her sons could play foot­ball with­out get­ting dirty.

She added:“The kids are up­set. My eight-yearold is al­ways out­side play­ing foot­ball.”

Sue added a neigh­bour was also robbed of their ar­ti­fi­cial grass on the same night, say­ing:“My neigh­bour caught it all on CCTV.”

She had put a post on Face­book and since then a kind-hearted land­scaper has of­fered to re­place Sue’s grass and fix her fence for free.

Po­lice said they are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent.
