Items of “huge sentimental value” to bereaved parents who were robbed last week have been returned.
The parents, whose baby had recently died, had their black Ford Fiesta stolen from Mead Road in Dartford on Wednesday, April 19.
Inside the car was a blue, grey and black striped blanket that the baby had been wrapped in at birth, as well as a red toy dinosaur, a blue baby mirror, two car seats and a buggy.
Sgt Becky Jones said the theft caused “a great deal of upset and distress for the whole family”.
On Sunday evening, all of the items were left at North Kent Police Station in Northfleet.
However, the car remains stolen and police are continuing their search.
The Fiesta had been undergoing repairs, with a faulty bonnet which does not close properly.
Its licence plate begins X389, though police fear it may have been removed.
