Jewellery stolen in burglary at a home near Peterborough is rumoured to have been offered for sale at local car boot sales.

According to members on pages on the social media Facebook site the rings and other items have turned up at car boots in the Fenland area since their theft from a house in Netherton.

The family has been left devastated after thieves stole the sentimental items from their home in Berkeley Road on Friday evening (September 4) between 7.30pm and 10pm.

Offenders forced open a back door before ransacking the living room and bedrooms, taking sentimental jewellery from a jewellery box in the master bedroom.

A gift bag with a birthday card, £150 in cash and 500 Australian dollars, also caught the eye of the thieves, who took the money and left the bag and card behind.
