Their home was targeted between 11pm on Sunday 7th and 11am on Monday 8th

Thames Valley Police are urging the offenders to 'look into their conscience' and return the items to Anthony and Paula's family.

The family has since taken measures to remove other items in the house for safe storage.

Officers will carry out additional patrols in the area as a result of the burglary.

The couple's bodies were found at their home in Chapel Lane a few days before the burglary

We are investigating this burglary in which it’s thought a number of items linked to Concorde and Anthony Meadows’s work as a pilot were stolen. These items have sentimental value to the family who have recently lost both their mother and father just last week. We are appealing for anyone with information as to the whereabouts of these items. We would ask anyone who may have been offered these items for sale to please get in touch with Thames Valley Police.”
