A pair of "brazen" burglars broke into two flats in Chelsea in the middle of the day, stealing more than £20,000 worth of property - including Christmas presents - from one, leaving the victims "traumatised".
While thieves broke into one of the flats in Stadium Street and took nothing, they stole £20,000 worth of jewellery, cash, cards and Christmas presents from another.
The burglaries - which took place between 1pm and 5.45pm on December 4 - saw both properties have their doors kicked.
One man is described as black, over 6ft 6inches tall, of a slim build and at the time of the burglary was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, black gloves and grey trainers with white soles.
The second man is described as black, approximately 5ft 7inches tall with short afro hair, and was wearing a black jacket with a grey hoodie underneath, black jeans and white trainers.
The two suspects left the scene in a light brown vehicle.
Police described the burglars as "brazen" and said the burglary had left the victims "traumatised and upset".
