A young woman whose fianc died after a tragic motorbike accident has suffered further devastating blows.

Vickie Gregson's boyfriend, Mark Walshaw, died in hospital after the motorcycle on which he was a passenger was in collision with a bus in Spen Lane, Gomersal.

Vickie suffered further heartache when fire wrecked the upstairs floor of her home in Spring Bank Drive, Norristhor-pe, near Liversedge.

The blaze was so severe that her stepfather, Mark Berry, was taken to a decompression chamber at a hospital in Hull, suffering from smoke inhalation.

Most of Vickie's belongings were lost in the fire, but she managed to rescue a handbag and some precious jewellery.

But there was a third blow for Vickie when she visited the Obediah Brooke pub in Bradford Road, Cleckheaton, and her handbag was stolen.

The Burberry bag - cream coloured with a checked pattern and small handles - contained £200 with which Vickie had intended to buy clothes to replace those damaged in the fire.

It also contained a gold engagement ring with a sapphire surrounded by diamonds, a flat-link kerb chain which Mark was wearing at the time of the accident, and a gold, oval locket with linked chain, given to her by her mother.

"The jewellery means everything in the world to me," said Vickie. "I can replace the bag and money but Mark can't come back and get me another engagement ring or chain. The chain was given to me by his parents after the accident.

"I would say to whoever has the jewellery: you can keep the money and bag and anything else, but the ring is priceless to me."

Vickie is desperately hoping someone may have seen the thief strike.

"The bag was on the floor by my feet and then it was gone," she said.

She said the couple had planned to get engaged in Mexico last November, but their dream never came true.

"We had found a house in Low Moor and even talked about having children," she said. "I just want the jewellery back."
