Now thieves target second hospital's Christmas presents for sick children as wellwishers flock to Great Ormond Street to replace stolen gifts

Callous thieves ransacked a hospital grotto and stole presents that had been donated by top footballers for sick children.

The raiders tore down decorations the seriously ill youngsters had made by hand for the playroom at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire's Children's Centre.

Thieves took around £1,000-worth of gifts, including Playstation, Xbox and Wii games and controllers in the overnight raid on Sunday.
