Thieves have stolen a car, jewelery, cash and a shotgun from a house in Cheshire whilst the owners were on holiday.

Police are appealing for information after thieves broke into a house in Nantwich. It happened at some point between Friday 12 November and Sunday 14 November.

At 0940 a.m. on the morning of Sunday 14 November, a member of the public out walking a dog in Oakmere, Northwich saw a Land Rover Estate off the road and in a field off Hogshead Lane, and alerted police.
