Officers said access was forced to a caravan at the rear of Bure Close.

A 30in straight sword, which features Japanese calligraphy inscriptions at the base of the blade and a black leather handle, was stolen from within.

Investigating officer Det Con Josh Peak said: “This is a very unusual item and not the sort of thing you see every day.

“The owner is keen to get the sword back so I would ask anyone who has information or has been offered it for sale to contact police.”
