A man is wanted for questioning by police after a ‘substantial amount’ of ‘valuable’ jewellery was taken from a woman’s home in Weston.

The burglary took place at a house in Clifton Road on January 6 at around 2.45-3pm.

The woman was distracted from the theft of a safe in her home, which contained her jewellery, by a man who knocked on her front door.

He claimed his son had thrown a set of keys into her garden and asked if he could go in the house to collect them.

She then heard shouting and the man ran down the garden path and jumped into a dark coloured car in a road outside the home, which had two male passengers inside it.
