The novel saved by a police forensic team

When Trish Vickers lost her sight, she decided to make use of her vivid imagination by painstakingly writing a book in longhand.


But after hours of hard work and careful thought, she was left devastated when she was told that 26 pages were blank because her pen had run out of ink.

The 59-year-old mother feared that the manuscript was lost but the generosity of her local police force meant that it was gradually recovered using forensic technology.

Miss Vickers said she was "gobsmacked" when Dorset police officers agreed to help by sacrificing their lunch hours over five months to study the indents made by her pen.

"I could remember the gist of what I had written but there was no way I could have written exactly the same way again," she said. "I am so grateful. It was really nice of them and I want to thank them for helping me out."

Miss Vickers, from Charmouth, near Lyme Regis, lost her sight seven years ago through diabetes and turned to her imagination for solace.
