A 15-year-old girl from Ingham who appealed for help after a Kindle containing irreplacable photos of her late grandparents flew off the roof of her car on Tuesday is 'ecstatic' to have found it.

Hannah Webster had been helping her mum Lis pack up the car before setting off for Sapiston to feed her pony, Wally, when she accidentally left her Kindle Fire, brace box and house key on the car roof.

The pair drove off with the items still on the roof, with Hannah, who is a student at King Edward VI School, only realising when they arrived in Sapiston.

The Kindle, which was given to Hannah as a Christmas present three years ago, was found by Hannah's father this morning in the undergrowth beside the A134.

Despite being soaking wet and smashed, the family are hopeful that they will be able to salvage the memory card containing the photos of Hannah's grandma, who died two years ago, and grandad, who died just six weeks ago.

"Our prayers have been answered and we got our miracle," said Lis, who has been out searching with friends and family since Tuesday.

"Hannah is ecstatic, as we all are. We really had begun to give up hope."

Lis added that once the photos had been accessed, they would be printing off and saving special copies.

Hannah and Lis would like to thank everyone for their help and messages of support.
