WRAPPED Christmas presents and pieces of rare china collectables were stolen from a Sawtry home by raiders just days before Christmas.

Around 50 Royal Crown Derby plates and bird figurines were taken during the burglary which took place between 4pm on Thursday, December 22, and 12.30am the following day.

PC James Bowen, investigating, said: "This burglary has had a huge impact on the victim as the offenders stole a number of wrapped presents just days before Christmas.

"The china collection is also very distinctive and I would urge anyone who is offered such items for sale to contact police."

Anyone with any information should call PC Bowen on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
