A 52-year-old FA gold medal was among items stolen during two burglaries in Aylesbury on Tuesday.

Thieves struck at two houses in Greetham Road, forcing open the rear kitchen windows using a tool.

As well as the FA amateur 1962 gold medal, silver coins, electrical items, watches, jewellery and alcohol were stolen.

“We would like to remind people to remain vigilant and ensure that their properties are as secure as possible at all times.”
