TREASURED family jewellery worth £40,000 was stolen during a burglary.

Police have released photos of the items in a bid to find and reunite them with their owners.

A distinctive necklace, earring sets and a number of rings were taken from the house in Sewall Highway on July 25.

Also taken was the 60-year-old householder's passport - and other other family items - as well as several hundred pounds in cash.

PC Peter Waterman said: "It is always distressing for victims to come home to find someone has been inside their house and in this case the gentleman is upset that precious items belonging to his family have been stolen.

"We have now released photos of some of the stolen jewellery in the hope it may jog someone's memory, perhaps if they have been offered similar items for sale.

"These pieces are just a few from the haul that was taken and we want to hear from anyone who has information to help us trace the stolen goods or about those responsible for the break in."

Anyone with information should dial 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
