Silver cutlery and jewellery were stolen in burglary after intruders got in through back garden.

A house in Chepbourne Road, Bexhill, was burgled between 9am and 11.15am on July 6.

It is believed that the intruder gained access to the property through the back garden, as the garden fence had been damaged.

Sussex Police has launched Operation Magpie to tackle burglary across Sussex.
