JEWELLERY, war medals and other valuables were stolen during a burglary at an unoccupied house in Ilminster.

Police have carried out house to house enquiries and are appealing for witnesses to the theft on Thursday, August 6, between 10am-5pm.

PC Anthony Warren said: “There are clear signs of entry to the property being forced by those who stole the items from the property.

“Many of them have great sentimental value and the family are desperate for them to be returned.

“We’d ask anyone who saw what happened, has seen the items pictured, or spotted an old-style red Jaguar that was seen in the area, to get in touch with us on 101, giving reference number 5220176560.”
