Sentimental items including family photos and jewellery have been stolen by thieves during a burglary in a Northamptonshire village.

The burglary happened between midnight and 6.30am yesterday (Tuesday), in Moulton Road, Holcot.

The offenders broke into the property through the back door and stole various electrical items, including a black Acer Aspire laptop and a white Panasonic digital camera.

Some items of jewellery were also taken, which were of great sentimental value to the victim.

Officers believe the door lock may have been tampered with earlier in the day, which then prevented the door being properly locked.

Witnesses, or anyone with any information about the stolen property, are asked to contact Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
