A handbag with keys and a purse inside has been stolen in what police have described as a “sneak-in” burglary near Wyberton on Wednesday afternoon.

Someone got into a house in North Forty Foot Bank, Wyberton Fen, near Hubberts Bridge train station, and stole a black leather handbag which contained a blue purse with bank cards and the keys.

It happened at about 3pm and the burglary has led police to warn people that with the arrival of warmer weather, they should take care to keep their homes secure and valuables out of sight.

Anyone with information should call DC Julie Dovaston at Boston CID on 101, quoting case 245 of April 13.
