The victim had gone out for the afternoon and returned to find the back door of her Como Street home smashed in and jewellery, as well as a passport, taken.

DI Andy Brown said: “To be burgled at any time is traumatic but on Christmas Eve it has got to be awful.

“I would urge all residents not only to keep valuables safe but to keep a photographic record of items. This enables us to make appeals and in some circumstances return property to you.“

If anyone has information on the burglary or on items the same as those shown, please contact DI Brown at Romford Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
