Rare silver antique stolen in Burwell raid
POLICE have released an image of a distinctive silver antique that was stolen in a burglary.
The salt, pepper and mustard dispenser, which is in the shape of jockey’s boots and hat, was stolen with other silver items in a burglary at a property in Heath Road, Burwell, on June 15.
Other items stolen include a tea caddy, six silver ducks, and a cheese wedge.
It is not known what the items are worth, although they are believed to be valuable and are of sentimental value to the victim.
PC Kelly Purkiss, who is investigating, said: “The victim is upset that these items have been stolen, not because of their financial value but because they are family heirlooms.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Purkiss on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
