Thieves also stole the keys to a 2007 silver Vauxhall Vectra that was parked outside the house and made off with it.

Alnwick Neighbourhood Inspector Paul Truscott said: “House burglaries of this nature are few and far between in the area and I’d appeal to anyone that may have seen any suspicious people or cars or any kind of activity in Longframlington over the course of that weekend to get in touch.

“A number of unusual and expensive items were stolen during the burglary and I’d ask if anyone is offered any of the items for sale to contact us with information as soon as possible.

“We have had officers out speaking to local residents and extra patrols in the area since the burglary and if anyone knows anything that could help us with our inquiries then I’d ask them to ring us.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101 ext 69191, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
