Rolex watches, a Victorian coin collection and a book signed by Frank Sinatra were among the items stolen in a Letchworth burglary.

An appeal for information has been launched today in relation to the burglary which took place at a house in Blackmore, Letchworth, when a door was forced open and several items were taken.

A Queen’s Jubilee medal was stolen, along with a book signed by Sammy Davis Jnr, Lamborghini, Ferrari and Bentley car key chains, a Fernando Alonso driver’s circular medal, commemorative coins marking the D-Day landings and Prince George’s birthday, Real Madrid cuff links and a swiss army knife with an engraved fire engine logo.

Several watches were stolen including a white-faced man’s Breitling, a circular-faced man’s Bvlgari with a rose gold outer edge, and a square-faced Rolex with see-through working parts and brown leather strap.

Detective constable Kate Raine, who is calling for witnesses following the burglary which took place between 4.30pm and 9pm on Friday, July 25, said: “These items hold a lot of sentimental value for the victim and many of them are very distinctive and unique. I would like to hear from anyone who has been offered the items for sale or knows of their whereabouts straight away.

“Equally, anyone who remembers hearing or seeing anything suspicious at the time of the burglary should contact me as they may be able to assist the investigation.”

Anyone with any information in relation to this incident should contact DC Raine via Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency number 101. Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
