BRITAIN’S biggest family, The Radfords, have been left disgusted after a grave robber swiped a toy train from their stillborn son’s headstone.
Sue, 45, and Noel Radford, 49, have welcomed 22 children, but tragically their 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.
Taking to Facebook, the couple’s eldest child Sophie Broadley, 25, vented after discovering a thief had stolen from her baby brother’s grave.
She wrote: “Tonight I’ve had a text from my mum to say have you taken Alfie’s train from his grave 😤
“Usually we take his teddies home to clean etc etc so she thought I might of done this which I haven’t (sic).
“I bought this for one of Alfie’s birthday presents so who ever has stolen it had better return it 😤 absolute sick idiots stealing from a baby’s grave😤 hope you’re proud of yourself”
Sophie then pleaded with the thief, asking them to return the missing train before July 6th on what would have been Alfie’s 6th birthday.
Fans of the Radfords were left outraged by the news, sharing their disgust in the comments while offering their condolences to the family.
One wrote: “That is the lowest of low, thieving scumbags! 😤🤬 hope to god it’s returned all in tact.”
Agreeing a second added: “Omfg what has the world come too sick sick sick to steal from a baby's grave low life hope it's returned.”
“What unbelievable lowlife !! That’s awful Sophie ur poor family” added a third.
The family recently took their newest arrival Heidie, who was born in April, to visit Alfie's grave so she could "meet him."
Sue shared a poignant photo in May showing the sleeping tot in her carrier next to Alfie’s flower-adorned grave.
Sue captioned the image: “Took Heidie to meet her big brother Alfie #babyloss #stillborn #missedeveryday.”
Heidie is the latest of the couple's children, which include: Chris, 31, who no longer lives at the family home; Sophie, 25, who has also moved out; Chloe, 24; Jack, 22; Daniel, 20; Luke, 19; Millie, 18; Katie, 17; James, 16; Ellie, 15; Aimee, 14; Josh, 12; Max, 11; Tillie, nine; Oscar, eight; Casper, seven; Hallie, four; Phoebe, three; Archie, two, and Bonnie, who turned one in November.
They also have three grandchildren – who are Sophie's kids – Daisy, six, Ayprill, four, and Leo, two.
The parents famously don’t claim benefits and rely on Noel’s bakery business to make ends meet.
In other news, the family built an "all-inclusive holiday resort" for their 22 kids in the back garden.
And they showed off their fun garden with bean bags and water stations as they enjoy the heatwave.
Shopping for Britain’s biggest family means Sue’s shopping list already included 100 nappies, 16 loaves of bread, 114 pints of milk, 48 large eggs, 3kg of pasta, 24 chicken breasts and 28 toilet rolls.
