House in Birstall is burgled twice in two days

A house in Leicestershire has been burgled twice in two days, police have said.

In the early hours of Monday, the property in Wanlip Lane, Birstall, was broken into and a wallet and keys taken.

The following morning a number of large parcels were stolen from the hallway.

Officers have appealed for witnesses to come forward, saying the theft of the parcels would have needed several trips near a busy road.

They added the possibility the same person was responsible for both incidents was being considered.
