Dorset Police have helped blind author Trish Vickers from Charmouth recover her work using specialist forensic techniques.
Trish has diabetes and lost her sight seven years ago. Using a system of elastic bands, she was in the process of writing her debut novel ‘ Grannifer’s Legacy ‘ when her pen ran out of ink. Not noticing this, she managed to write 26 pages of work . Only when her son Simon came to visit was the problem uncovered.
Dorset police came to the rescue and in their spare time, two officers at Winfrith used forensic techniques usually used in crime solving to recover her work.
A delighted Trish has now received her recovered work.
