A baby toy and other items stolen from a couple whose son had recently died have been returned to a police station.

The items were inside a black Ford Fiesta stolen from Mead Road, Dartford on Wednesday, Kent Police said.

A red toy dinosaur, a buggy and two car seats were left at North Kent Police station at about 18:15 BST on Sunday, a spokesman said.

A blue, grey and black-striped blanket the baby had been wrapped in and a blue baby mirror were also stolen.

A Kent Police spokesman said an investigation was under way to find out who had left the items outside the police station.

Sgt Becky Jones, of Kent Police, previously said the theft had caused “a great deal of upset and distress for the whole family”.

“These items are of huge sentimental value to the victim and the family would desperately like them back,” she added.

Following the theft, the baby’s father – who wants to remain anonymous – said: “It’s that heartbreak feeling again… It’s destroyed me.”
