Burglars broke into a newly married couple's home while they were on honeymoon and stole both wedding and Christmas presents.

This crime happened on Woodham Drive, Sunderland, between 1pm n Tuesday, December 12, and 11.30am the following day.

Among the items stolen were two Michael Kors watches, an Armani watch, a Tiffany bracelet, Tiffany earrings, an All Saints burnt orange suede bag, five or six Jo Malone gits sets (in yellow and black striped gift bags) and a boxed vacuum cleaner.

Police have appealed Members of the public offered similar items for sale, including second hand shops or online to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Steve Wallace, of Northumbria Police, who is dedicated to investigating burglaries, said: “It is devastating to think that a couple who were on their honeymoon have had their home broken into and gifts given to them to celebrate their wedding stolen while they were away and I would urge anyone who has any information that can help to get in contact with us.”

Anyone with information should contact Northumbria Police on 101 quoting reference 365 131217 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
