The intruders searched through the house before making off with a substantial amount of gold jewellery.

Police investigating the break in have today released photographs of examples of the jewellery that may have been offered for sale to people locally.

DC Sarah Meacock, from the Local Crime Unit in Hatfield, said: “These were much-loved family items that were of great sentimental value as well as great financial value to the victims.

“The jewellery is very distinctive in its style and would be recognisable if offered to someone for sale.
