Police have condemned those responsible for stealing flowers from graves on the Isle of Wight.

Two women made separate reports after noticing floral tributes missing from a cemetery off Tennyson Road, Yarmouth.

One of the victims had placed a plant at her mother's grave on 31 October but found it missing on Saturday.

The other woman had flowers stolen from her late husband's grave in the same graveyard sometime between Monday and Saturday.

Sgt Mark Lyth said: "The disappearance of floral tributes from family graves is clearly upsetting for these women.

"Thefts from graveyards are among the lowest forms of offending.

"Police are treating these allegations with the utmost seriousness and sensitivity."

He appealed for anyone with information to come forward.
