BURGLARS broke into a pensioner's home in South Marston, stealing sentimental jewellery and a television.

The burglary happened on February 17 between 12pm and 8.30pm in the area of the main route through South Marston.

They forced entry though a window at the back of the property, which was unoccupied at the time.

A 42' Samsung television was taken, along with a diamond engagement ring and a distinctive Rover watch which had been engraved and given to the victim to celebrate 25 years at the car firm.  

Anyone with information should call 101.
