Do you recognise the two hooded men in this CCTV footage? Police want to speak to them in connection with the theft of jewellery from a house in Soham while the owners were away.

The incident relates to house in The Birches which was burgled at about 12.10am on February 14.

In the fifteen second video released by Cambs Police it is obvious that the intruder recognises that there are CCTV cameras.

In one moment he is seen moving towards the camera and reaching out to put his hand over the lens to cover it.

The police are hoping that if people pause on the moment they come closest to camera they will be able to identify the two burglars.
