The card, packed with pictures of two-week-old Sophia Hajnorouzi as well as photos of her brother Zane, two, was dropped near the Nag’s Head in Holloway Road on Tuesday morning.

Their mother – freelance trainer Josie Hajnorouzi, of Archway – said she would pay £50 to anyone who could get the card back to her and husband Matthew.

“He was buying vegetables from the fruit van and he thinks it could have come out of his pocket when his wallet came out,” heartbroken Josie, 38, told the Gazette.

“Why it was in his pocket – that’s another story.

“My husband’s gone out there putting up signs everywhere. He obviously feels like rubbish.”

Anyone who believes they have found the SD card is asked to contact the Gazette, who will put Josie in touch. Call the news desk on 020 8477 3813.
