Burglars steal children's Christmas presents in Telford

Children's Christmas presents worth hundreds of pounds have been stolen from two homes in Telford.

Burglars broke into a house in Old Wharf in Malinslee on Monday and took a remote control car, X Box and a laptop.

In the second burglary, at The Court in Sutton Hill on Wednesday morning, thieves took presents including DVDs and a make-up set.

The homeowner woke up to find two men running away.

Police have not said that they are linking the incidents and are warning homeowners to be on their guard and to keep their Christmas gifts secure.
