A large quantity of money was stolen from the safe, as well as a gold watch and a gold-coloured necklace which had a medical pendant attached to it.

PC Lisa Lee, who is investigating, said: “I’d like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed this incident, or who may have come into contact with the stolen items.

“The necklace in particular is quite distinctive as it has an engraved medical pendant attached to it.”
