BURGLARS ransacked the home of a newly-wed couple stealing jewellery, wedding presents and a camcorder containing their honeymoon video.

Abigail and Darren Davies of Bramford Road, Ipswich, were devastated when they returned home from a relative's wedding on Saturday, October18, to find thieves had turned their home upside down.

Mrs Davies, 23, said: "We left the house at about midday and got in at 1am. I walked in and saw things all over the floor and then we looked round and realised everything was missing. It was a horrible feeling."

"They stole the camcorder, a camera, a TV/DVD combi – all our wedding presents basically. But what I am most upset about is all the things of sentimental value."

The tape inside the camcorder was the couple's only record of their honeymoon in Teneriefe in August. It also contained footage of Mrs Davies' niece's first birthday party.

Mrs Davies said: "I just hope that maybe the thieves have dumped it somewhere and someone might find it."

The thieves also stole a number of pieces of jewellery with huge sentimental value. Mrs Davies said: "They took the earrings and necklace I wore on my wedding day, which were really special to me. My grandad watch and my nana's ring were also taken.

"They even took a box containing all our personal documents like our passports and marriage certificates."

The Evening Star was alerted to the couple's plight by Mrs Davies mum, Janet Bunn.

Mrs Bunn, of Bramford Lane, was also burgled about a month ago and says she no longer feels safe: "There are so many burglaries around here just lately and something's got to be done about it. It's horrible. People just don't think about what damage they are causing to another person's life."
