Mother’s faith restored after bag stolen near Chapelfield is handed in

A woman has told how her faith in human nature has been restored after her bag, which contained two cameras and her passport, was handed in.

Gina Rundle, pictured right, was putting a picture frame in her car which was parked in The Chantry car park, behind Chapelfield, when she turned around to find her bag was missing.

The bag contained her passport, store cards and two digital cameras, which contained photographs of her son's prom, her holiday to Berlin and her trips to New York and St Lucia where she renewed her wedding vows.

The mother of two from Bacton said: 'I was so upset I was sick.

'It had photos of my dog and cats, one of which is missing. They were memories I could never get back.'
