PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Cruel airport thieves removed a padlock from a suitcase which had been checked in at Manchester Airport and stole jewellery which was supposed to be a family's surprise 21st birthday present while on holiday in Portugal. The devastated Read family discovered the theft after they landed in Lisbon and realised someone had plundered their luggage. The thief or thieves had removed a metal padlock and snatched a Tiffany necklace and a Thomas Sabo bracelet which were presents for Ella Read, who celebrates her 21sth birthday while away on holiday on Saturday. They also swiped at least 20 birthday cards containing an estimated £300 in birthday money.

She is 51 on Monday and some of the stolen birthday cards were for her. The family, from Hyde, checked in one large suitcase which was secured by a padlock with a four-digit code. It took about 45 minutes for them to go through security but the flight left on time and they landed in Lisbon just after 1pm local time. They say their bag came through quickly and they noticed the padlock was missing and items were missing.

"Ella always wanted to come to Lisbon. Now she's got no birthday cards or anything to open on her birthday.
