The necklace a Stevenage woman wore on her wedding day has been stolen after her home was broken into last week.

The item - which had belonged to the victim for 21 years, and had huge sentimental value - was among multiple objects taken in a Wisden Road burglary.

The break-in took place between Monday, September 2, and Friday, September 6, while the victim was away.

It is thought the suspects entered the property through a window.

Detective Constable Kathryn Pink, from the Stevenage Local Crime Unit, has today launched a witness appeal and asks anyone who has come across the necklace to contact police.

She added: "I'd like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious activity in the area between the times stated. Please be sure to remain vigilant, especially when leaving your home unoccupied for an extended period of time."

Anyone with information should contact DC Pink directly via email at
