POLICE are appealing for witnesses after two break-ins in Lyme Regis.

Jewellery including a Durham Light Infantry Brooch and tie pin and a pair of Christian Dio earrings, silverware and a large bottle of whiskey were stolen from a house on Woodmead Road.

Police said entry to the unoocupied property was through a rear window between Saturday, May 24 and Tuesday, May 27.

And the front doors of Lyme Regis Cinema were forced open in a burglary overnight between Tuesday, May 27 and Wednesday 28.

The cinema manager said: "Luckily we don’t keep any large amounts of cash on the premises overnight, so the offender has not gotten away with very much."

Dorset Police would like anyone with any information on either incident to contact 101 or Crime Stoppers on 0800 555111.
