Police are appealing for information after a burglary in Upton during which a safe was stolen.

The theft happened sometime between Friday July 13 and Monday July 16.

Thieves searched an office and master bedroom before stealing the safe which contained jewellery.

Anyone with information is asked to call DC Howe on the 24 hour non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 43180216478.
