‘IRREPLACEABLE’ jewellery has been stolen from a Bishop’s Waltham home.

Antique jewellery was taken from a home in The Avenue, Bishop’s Waltham, between 5pm on Monday, November 5 and 10.10pm on Tuesday, November 6.

Burglars forced their way into the property while the owner was away and took a gold signet ring, inscribed HSV, and a number of silver napkin rings and silver cufflinks in a frog design.

PC Craig Robinson said: “The items stolen were of sentimental value to the victim and will be irreplaceable. I would like to speak to anyone who lives in the area who may have had unusual callers recently or noticed anything suspicious.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Robinson at North Walls Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
