She said: "I went down to the grave on June 24 and lay some fresh flowers down and the kids took a wooden Peter Rabbit they had made. I then went back on July 20, and found everything had gone.

"There was a plaque, some angel wings, a coin with a heart on. I was absolutely gutted."

Kamie-Jane lost her daughter Lottie in 2015, shortly after giving birth due to complications.

"It's really gut-wrenching," said Kamie. "It's upset my 13-year old and my three-year old keeps asking me where Peter Rabbit has gone. It was handmade and really irreplaceable.

"The only good thing is that I've had an amazing response from people.

"One lady offered to send some fake flowers to put on the grave and people have been posting money in envelopes through my mum's letterbox.

"People have been very kind, I would just like to have the items returned."
