AN ELDERLY couple who popped out for the afternoon returned to find that their home had been ransacked and their jewellery stolen.
A priceless gold wedding ring and engagement ring were among the items stolen from the house in Park Lane, Hayes.
The 70 year-old man and 62 year-old woman went out on Sunday afternoon between 4.30 and 6.50pm and when they got back they could see that their front door had been kicked through.
There was not much disturbance to the downstairs rooms, but when they went upstairs they found the bedside cabinets had been rummaged through and the jewellery box was missing.
In addition to the rings, three silver bracelets and one gold bracelet were also stolen.
Anyone with any information should contact Hillingdon Police on 01895 251212.
