“I had left a large suitcase in the boot, packed full of clothes, shoes, accessories and jewelry ready for an early start this morning.

“I was supposed to be doing a favour for a friend on their creative project and my case was full of carefully selected outfits for a full day on this project.

“Yes I called the police and they were helpful, but I keep waking up remembering what was in the case.

“I am devastated. Yes my favourite clothes and shoes, but my mum’s favourite Jaeger coat that I have inherited.”

Tamzin continued: “It was unique and irreplaceable.

“As soon as I realised the noise was my car alarm I was out the door driving around looking for someone dragging a very heavy case but nothing. I know I should not have left it in the boot, even though it was locked but I thought I was being well prepared.

“Anyway, I’m gutted. If anyone sees a leopard print, beautiful jaeger coat in a1 0 and a bunch of other clothes by @wyse_london @ScampandDude @marksandspencer @sweatybetty @Airandgrace trainers, some still with labels, please report it. Thank you.”
