Burglars broke in and stole cash and jewellery from a home in Weeley.

The crooks entered the Colchester Road property between 9.30am and 10pm on Wednesday.

The victim noticed someone had been inside because the lights had been left on and a ladder had been moved.

A number of items were stolen from inside, including cash and jewellery.

Essex Police are appealing for anyone who saw anybody acting suspiciously in the area around the time of the burglary to contact Pc Robert Clarke at Clacton CID on 101.

Reference number 42/155226/18 should be quoted.
