A newly-married couple have launched a Facebook appeal for the return of their precious wedding photos.

Wersha and Josh Bharadwa have offered a £5,000 reward for return of the pictures which were reportedly stolen in a burglary at a photographer?s studio in Hounslow, west London on 7 January.

The couple say they have alerted the local council?s waste disposal teams to keep an eye out for the missing images which were contained on DVDs, a computer and two external hard drives.

Wersha and Josh, who live in Kent, got married in Solihull, West Midlands last year.

On Facebook the couple wrote: ‘This appeal is about helping the thieves to come forward? Everyone likes a happy ending and we want to give exactly that.?

Anyone who can help is urged to call the Metropolitan Police.
