A HEARTBROKEN pensioner is appealing for help to trace precious ornaments stolen from her garden.

Thieves made off with a collection of ornaments from Susan Bell’s front garden in Ferndale in Wolsingham three weeks ago. The ornaments include a boy and girl laying in the grass reading a book, a dog planter and a sheep and two lambs.

The 79-year-old is keen to find out if anyone has been offered the items for sale or has come across them at a car boot sale.

Anyone with information, should contact Durham Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111.
