Burglars put a damper on festivities at a Rainham home by stealing wrapped gifts from beneath a Christmas tree.

The mean thieves struck at 9pm on Saturday, December 22, in Simpson Road.

They got into the house through a UPVC front door, making off with Christmas presents as well as a hot water bottle, a diary and a calendar.

Anyone with information should contact Romford Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
