Police save blind UK woman's invisible writing

A blind author unknowingly wrote the first 26 pages of her debut novel with a pen that didn't have any ink


The Mirror

Police forensics experts came to the rescue of a blind author after she wrote the first 26 pages of her debut novel with a pen that didn't have any ink.

Trish Vickers, 59, was heartbroken when she gave the draft to her son — only for him to tell her the pages were blank.

They took it to her local police station in Charmouth, Dorset, where an officer used infra-red and ultraviolet lights to retrace the etchings on the page during her lunch breaks.
