A TEENAGER'S university dream has been restored following the return of her stolen school work.
Annabel Chung, 17, had left two years of A-level coursework in her father's car when the vehicle was stolen from outside the family's home on Bramford Lane on Tuesday evening.
But with the help of a shy tipster, the maths, history and English work has since been recovered.
“She was heartbroken when I told her the car was taken,” said Annabel's father, Kim.
“Annabel's doing her exams in about two months and normally she's up revising till two or three in the morning. This is her future.
“I didn't care about the car - I just wanted to get her work back. It's of no importance to anybody else.”

Annabel is in her final year at Westbourne High School and has been offered places at a number of universities, including Oxford Brookes.
But those hopes were dashed when her father's Silver Mazda was stolen at around 7.45pm on Tuesday.
It was found on the junction of Linnet Road and London Road by police at Wednesday lunchtime after a tip-off from a man called Malcolm.
“It's nice to know there are still good hearted people out there,” said Mr Chung, who runs Tim Lee's Chinese takeaway.
“I want to find out who the man was and cook a meal for Malcolm and his family to say thank you.
“He heard the appeal on radio and I appreciate that he made an effort to go out and find the car. It gives me great faith in the community.”
