Police in Northumberland are hoping to reunite recovered items to their rightful owners.

On Tuesday, January 26 and Thursday, January 28, police will host open evenings at Hexham Police station to display items recovered from burglaries in Hexham and Corbridge.

T/Superintendent Jamie Pitt said: "Officers have recovered an Aladdin's cave of goods which we believe may have been stolen from the Tynedale area.

"We believe the goods recovered date back to burglaries committed in early 2014 and we encourage anyone who has been a victim of burglary in the Corbridge, Hexham, Riding Mill and Stocksfield areas to come to Hexham station so they can be reunited with their belongings.

"A number of residents in Hexham and Corbridge will have received a letter to make them aware of the open nights and many of the items are really distinctive, some of which could be family heirlooms, and we really need to return these to their rightful owners as soon as possible."

Some of the recovered items include:

-A variety of silver and gold jewellery including rings, bracelets, earrings and watches.

-Historic and commemorative coins

-Ladies ornate cosmetic mirror and hair brushes

-Harris Tweed hipflask

-Electrical items including Dell, Toshiba and Acer laptops

-Kobo, Kindle and Samsung tablets

-A specialised FSR XC 2009 Mountain bike

The open evenings will take place between 6pm and 8pm at Hexham station, Shaftoe Leazes.
