A large amount of signicantly sentimental jewellery was stolen from an elderly woman in Burton Latimer.

The items, including a brooch the woman’s uncle gifted to her after he fought in the First World War, were taken in a burglary in Barton Road.

The incident happened between Thursday, September 20 and Thursday, October 4, when a number of items of jewellery were stolen from the house including the brooch, a charm bracelet, rings, cufflinks and a necklace.

Many of these items have a significant sentimental value to the woman as they were given to her by relatives who have since died.
