Lynn Mosson is furious and upset after vandals attacked the joint grave of her daughter and husband, in Fleetwood Cemetery.

A Fleetwood woman has hit out after callous thieves stole from the grave of her husband and daughter.

Lynn Mosson went to Fleetwood Cemetery to put some fresh flowers on the grave where her husband Brian and daughter Jacqueline are buried.

But when Lynn and other relatives arrived, they discovered the two pots which hold the flowers had gone.

It is the second time in just 12 months the grave has been targeted.

Last year, several ornaments were smashed and flowers strewn about.

Lynn’s husband Brian died, aged 65, from chronic lung 
disease in September 2011.

Jacqueline died tragically young – at the age of just 22 – after suffering an epileptic 
episode 18 years ago.

Lynn, 60, who is well known in Fleetwood and the chairman of West View Community Association, said: “There is no way they could have been blown away, 
because they were secured very strongly.

“There is only one explanation – they have been stolen.It is just a shame that people can stoop so low.”

Wyre Council said its staff would be extra vigilant regarding any suspicious behaviour, but warned that “anything placed on headstone plinths is left there at the owners’ risk”.
