The devastated parents of a teenager with cerebral palsy have launched a campaign after her speech machine, the one way she has of communicating, was stolen from their car.

16-year-old Miya Thirlby's specially-programmed machine, called a liberator accent 100, costs £6,000 and took the family six months to acquire and program three years ago.
