Almost £2,000 worth of tools and electronics were stolen from a car in Braintree.

The items, including a Lenovo laptop, tools, a Samsung camera and dust sheets, were taken from the boot of a white Ford Cougar in Falkland Court overnight between February 28 and March 1.

No damage was caused to the car but when the owner returned the boot was open and the items, valued at £1,793, were gone.
