Detectives investigating an £11,000 burglary at a house in Surrey have released an image of an antique clock that was taken by the thieves.

The English bracket clock was made in about 1850 and was worth £4,000.

Offenders smashed their way into the detached house in Farnham on 4 May, Surrey Police said. The burglars also took jewellery worth £7,000.

Det Con Simon Paterson said the clock was a valuable piece and showed there was a market for horological goods.

The chiming mantle clock has the name H Laylor on its face and the serial number 4385.

Police want to speak to any antique dealers, traders or internet shoppers who seek the clock being offered for sale.
