Diamond rings, jewellery and a gold watch were stolen in a spate of burglaries across Londonderry.

PSNI detectives at Strand Road are appealing for information about the three burglaries on Wednesday.

Detective Inspector Lindsay Kitson said: "In the Culmore area, residents returned home to Belvoir Park to find it ransacked. The culprits are thought to have been disturbed and made off. Several diamond rings were stolen.

"Meanwhile, in Eglinton, jewellery and a gold watch were stolen from a house at Gransden Park between 2.30pm and 8.30pm.

"And in the Altnagelvin area, jewellery was stolen from a house at Ashgrove. The intruders also stole a large sum in £2 coins.

"We believe the house was entered through a downstairs window between 7.30pm and 9.30pm.

"We would like to hear from anyone who noticed suspicious activity or unknown vehicles close to any of the houses."

Information can be given on the police non-emergency number, 101, or by calling the Crimestoppers Charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
