The break-in happened during yesterday daytime after the male owner accidentally left the house keys in the front door the previous evening.

He left the house on Nelson Road on the Wednesday morning and returned in the evening to find his property had been burgled, with various electrical items and jewellery being stolen.

Investigating Officer Dc Andrea Ford said: “This man understands his mistake and regrets it terribly. Each week we remind people about the need to secure their homes as burglars are out there, committing crime.

“Hopefully this unfortunate burglary hammers the home message even more to everyone.”

A forensic examination of the scene was completed as were house-to-house enquiries.

Anyone with information in connection with this burglary is urged to contact detectives at Colchester police station on 101.

Don't believe the message that Jeremy Corbyn is unelectable

There’s something about Jez (as we hip young things on social media call Jeremy Corbyn) that thoroughly warms my cockles. Perhaps it’s his air of humility, his open-necked honesty or simply his dogged under-dogness?

Providing care for those in extreme old age, and with serious long-term health problems, is one of the major challenges facing society – especially for an area like East Anglia which has a disproportionately high number of older people.

People living near the Bulmer Fox pub (in Bulmer Tye near Sudbury) are at the end of their tether with the number of cars crashing throug their fence.

Another car has left the road at an accident blackspot on the Suffolk/Essex border – just days after an urgent plea was issued for measures to reduce the number of crashes.
