Thieves steal student's work again

A student has appealed for the return of his laptop computer after thieves stole important exam coursework for the second time in two years.

The computer, which was taken from 17-year-old Jay Endersby's family home in Iver, near Slough, contains essential A-level IT and design and technology projects.

Two years ago, the Chalfont Community College student, who is due to sit his final exams this summer, had GCSE art coursework stolen from his school.

Jay's mother, Michele Endersby, said: "We are all devastated. Our son has put in so much hard work and will now have to redo much of it.

"To make matters worse, a similar thing happened two years ago, when work that he had done for his GCSE in art was stolen from a display at school.

"We are also upset because the burglars took a camcorder containing film footage of Christmas and other family occasions. These are precious memories that cannot be recaptured."

The burglary took place in Norwood Lane between midday and 1630 GMT on Wednesday, 12 March.

The stolen goods are a Sony FX401 laptop computer and a JVC camcorder.

Jay's parents are prepared to offer a reward for their safe return.

Anyone with any information should contact Slough police.
