A heartbroken mum has been left devastated after the council removed mementos from her baby daughter’s grave.
Lisa Kerrigan’s daughter, Alissa Aslam, was stillborn in June 2016.
Since the tragedy, the 29-year-old mum has spent time building a fitting tribute to her daughter at Pitkerro Grove Cemetery.
But Lisa was left shocked when she visited on Saturday to find all of her mementos had been taken away.
Dundee City Council told Lisa it had written to her about the clearance – but she claims the letter was sent to her old address, despite her being a council tenant.
The Douglas resident said: “When I went to the grave on Saturday I couldn’t believe it when I saw everything I had carefully chosen and placed there had been removed by the council.
“I’m absolutely heartbroken, I can’t believe that everything was removed and I wasn’t told about it.
“The council said it wrote to me at my old address. I haven’t lived there for two years.
“I live in a council house and pay my rent every month. You would think the council could have got my address right.”
The tragic loss of Alissa is still fresh in the memory for Lisa two years on.
And she admits this latest episode has brought all of the heartbreak rushing back.
She added: “I went to hospital when I couldn’t feel my baby moving. I was told that her heart had stopped beating.
“I then had to go through with labour and delivery and Alissa was still born. It was awful. My partner, Ian Aslam, and I were devastated at the time.
“Since then we have spent two years getting her grave to look just the way we wanted it in her memory.
“However when I went along with my son, Dylan Drummond, 11, on Saturday everything had been removed.
“It feels now like it’s happening all over again and I’m just beginning the grieving process.”
A Dundee City Council spokeswoman said: “We are continuing to liaise with the family.”
