Thieves stole a games console and jewellery from a Braintree house.

Some £330 worth of goods, including a £100 necklace, a £50 bracelet, and earrings, were taken from a house in Mountbatten Road last Wednesday.

A Nintendo Wii, worth £150, was also stolen.

The thieves smashed their way into the house by breaking a glass panel in the front door.
