"We are also missing some stolen property - a digital camera, a handbag, black purse with credit cards and cash, two laptops and a safe containing watches and money. If anyone knows the whereabouts of this property, we would like to hear from you so that we can return this stolen property to the rightful owners."
She pointed out that the doors were an easy target for burglars as they weren't double locked and added: "To reduce the chances of you being burgled, make sure you double lock all UPVC doors - don't give burglars an open invitation into your home."
