DISTRAUGHT burglary victim Diane Peck today pleaded for people to looks out for irreplacable jewellery given to her by her late husband.

Offenders smashed a window at Mrs Peck's home in Downing Close, Bury St Edmunds, between 1.45pm and 10.15pm on Thursday and stole property valued at more than £7,000.

But the real worth of the stolen goods lies in their sentimental value.

Mrs Peck, who lost her first husband John Rolph to cancer over 20 years ago, said today: "They took jewellery he gave me, including a gold bracelet which he gave me when our son Matthew was born 29 years ago. He said it was a thank you present for having our son.

"There was also a heavy gold chain stolen, which was to be passed to Matthew but Matthew had asked me to look after it. It is very distinctive, made in Africa, with two tiger claws with gold filigree decoration.
