POLICE are asking the public to study several photos of jewellery and cutlery with the hope that someone will recognise some of the items.

The handful of vintage looking pieces, which includes a broach, a silver medallion and a set of gold spoons, was discovered during a search of a property carried out by Essex Police in the Dunmow area.

The discovery came on Tuesday May 21 and police believe the items to have been stolen.

Anyone who recognises them is asked to call Braintree CID on 101.
