JEWELLERY and an iPad were among the items stolen from a Rayleigh home on Wednesday.

Crooks broke into the house on Warwick Road sometime between 8am-6pm through a UPVC window.

They stole a white iPad mini in a purple case, a gold Rotary watch, which was presented to the victim's father for long service to Royal Mail, and other jewellery, including a distinctive two inch gold Teddy Bear with coloured stones.

Anyone who has been offered the items to buy or anyone who has any information about who is responsible is asked to contact Dc Jon Holden at Southend CID on 101.
