A grieving son who had his pick-up truck stolen with the ashes of his dead mother inside is delighted after finding them returned to his parking space.<br />
<br />
Matt Hart, 62, had picked up the remains of mum Joan from the funeral directors and was planning to take them to a memorial service for her.<br />
<br />
He left them in his Toyota vehicle which was broken into and taken in the middle of the night on 16 January.<br />
<br />
The white truck was found abandoned in a country lane missing its while and all personal possessions inside, including the urn.<br />
<br />
Mr Hart scoured hedgerows surrounding the vehicle in Bridport, Dorset, but there was no sign of the ashes.<br />
<br />
But more than two weeks later they were mysteriously found in the very parking space the vehicle was stolen from.<br />
<br />
It is thought the thieves might have returned to the garage complex and replaced the urn after Mr Hart took to Facebook to launch an appeal.<br />
<br />
He is now looking after them at home until one of his family come to visit and take them near to Applecross in Wester Ross, Scotland, where they will be scattered.
