A MUM who lost her baby when he was eight weeks old says she has been left with only one photo of her son.

Mum-of-five Jodie Wild says she took two phones to Stuart Haines - who has been accused of leaving customers out of pocket - to be fixed earlier this year and handed over £218.

But one had a memory card inside with precious photos of her baby Taylor, who died in 2008.

She now has only one photo left of her little boy, who was born with a heart defect.

Jodie, 35, who lives in Milton, Portsmouth, said: ‘It’s just pure evil. I’m still having bereavement counselling to help me through and the one thing that I had treasured has gone.

‘I don’t go to the cemetery because it’s too hard. We have still got his clothes and snuggles but I want the pictures. They don’t mean anything to anyone else.

‘I took two phones to him. I am not bothered about them but he has an SD card that had the photos on.

‘He promised that I would get the pictures back. I have only got one photo of Taylor now.’

Jodie said she has approached Mr Haines a number of times and has been told the memory card would be returned.
