Detective Sergeant Simon Carter, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Our investigation into this incident remains ongoing to piece together exactly what happened but I am pleased to say we have already managed to recover some of the stolen items.

“We understand the impact a burglary can have on a person and family and those people that live at the address – not just emotionally but financially too.

“This is why we take any reports of burglary extremely seriously and will always do everything in our power to not only find those responsible but also attempt to reunite any stolen goods with their owners.”
