    Police said that thieves have stolen around £2,000 worth of Christmas food and presents before leaving the wrapping paper on the street.

    Thames Valley Police said that a group of burglars broke into a house that is located in Walton Street, Oxford, during the early hours of Christmas Eve.

    Children’s games, toys, and clothes were among the items that were stolen by the bandits.

    PC Rebecca Nightingale stated: “I would like to speak to anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area at this time.

    “Offenders would have been carrying five large bags of items around the area at an unusual time of day.

    “Christmas presents were opened and wrapping paper dropped in the street following the burglary.”

    The police did not release a description of the said culprits.

    Anyone with information is requested to call the police at 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously at 0800 555111.
