Burglars stole valuable silverware from a 101-year-old man’s Alnmouth home in a ‘cruel and callous’ attack.

Crooks broke into the property and stole items including silver cutlery, jugs, cups and ornaments, on the afternoon of Wednesday, December 19.

Detective Constable Alan Bogle, of Northumbria Police, said: “A burglary like this is always distressing, but particularly so at Christmas and when it involves such an elderly victim.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101.
