The grieving Looe parents who lost two children to a rare genetic condition lay into fly tippers who have targeted their cemetry.

Ellie Libby inspired Ellie's Haven, a charity campaign to build a holiday centre in Cornwall for sick children.

Her ashes are due to be scattered next to her fourteen month old brother. But now a bedstead has been dumped just feet away. Her dad Nigel discovered it when he went to measure up for a headstone.

He said: "It's disgusting, there's no other word for it. I'm extremely annoyed, extremely angry that when you go to a place to see a loved one the last thing you expect to have is some other person's rubbish because they can't be bothered or don't have the decency to remove it."
