The burglar used a ladder to climb in through an open window 30ft off the ground before ransacking the flat and stealing Chinese yuan and jewellery worth £700. They climbed back out and fled, leaving the ladder behind.

The victims only discovered the break-in when they saw the ladder outside and contacted police.
