POLICE are hunting heartless thieves who fled with a Limavady grandmother's most prized possessions. It is believed that the burglars struck at Shanreagh Park while widow Christina McCartney was undergoing brain surgery at Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital.
The callous raiders fled with Christina's engagement ring from her late husband William, as well as a chain he gave her on the day the couple got engaged in 1957. A ring from her daughter, who died suddenly last April, was also taken.
Distraught Christina made an emotional plea to the intruders to return her jewellery. The 78-year-old said it would mean "everything" to get the missing items back.
