Swindon Police are appealing for witnesses or those with information about a burglary where two distinctive antique jugs and an iPhone were stolen.

The break-in happened in the Rodbourne area of Swindon, at around 10pm on 31 October, and officers have released pictures of the two items stolen in the hope that someone may have seen them for sale.

The Toby jugs - one which resembles a pig dressed as a baker and the other which resembles a French soldier sat on a barrel - were stolen along with a grey iPhone 6.

PC Ollie Venton, from Swindon Community Policing Team, said: "These antique items hold sentimental value for the owner and we are trying to trace them as part of our ongoing investigation.

"If you have any information about the burglary or if you have seen these items for sale in suspicious circumstances, then please call us."

Anyone with information is being asked to call PC Venton on 101, quoting crime reference 54210107362.

Alternatively members of the public can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
