BURGLARS stole a 42 inch flatscreen television from a house in Greenstead.

They broke into the home in Magnolia Drive through a patio door between 2.30pm and 5.25pm on Tuesday.

Detective Mark Peacock, of Colchester CID, said: “If anyone saw any suspicious activity in this area, especially anyone carrying this television or loading it into a vehicle, I would very much like to hear from them.”

Anyone with information should call Colchester Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
