THE furious parents of a severely disabled girl have slammed burglars who have delayed her move to a dream new home.

Nine-year-old Isabelle Taylor, who suffers from cerebral palsy, uses a wheelchair and needs her home to be specially adapted to her needs.

Her father, Neil, and a team of builders have been painstakingly working on a new family home in Ferndown, ahead of a move from their current address in Christchurch.

But burglars broke in and stole almost £10,000 worth of tools and equipment while Neil was away attending his mother’s funeral in Birmingham.

Now Neil and his wife Julie have appealed for help from the public to trace those responsible for the raid.

Neil, a plumber, said: “We have been renovating the house for around three months and want to move in as soon as possible.

“Our son, Sebastian, has already started school in Parley and we are delaying people getting into our current home in Christchurch.

“I just want the burglars to know what they’ve done. It’s just not on. They obviously don’t think about the effect they are having on people when they break into their homes.”

The raid took place on the evening of Thursday January 4 or early the following day at the property in Golf Links Road. It was discovered when builders arrived for work at around 9am on Friday January 5.

“It happened at some time between the builders going home for the evening and coming in again the following morning” added Neil.

He said items taken included around £4,000 worth of Bosch power tools and a Vaillant boiler.

A spokesman for Dorset Police confirmed the domestic burglary was reported at 9.20am and that it is currently under investigation. No arrests have been made.
