“This burglary has seen a lifetime collection of jewellery stolen including items passed down from previous generations that cannot be replaced.
“I would like to appeal to anyone with information about this burglary, or the stolen items, to contact the police.” Contact PC Ferguson at Winchester Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
