Police are hoping to trace a set of rare coins which are believed to have been stolen during a burglary in the Newport area.

They are among only 1,500 that were minted in Tonga, in the South Pacific, in 1967 and are made of palladium.

A pair were stolen in a burglary sometime between December 27, 2017, and January 2.

Anyone who has been offered them for sale or knows of their whereabouts is asked to call Detective Constable Chris Sedgwick at Braintree CID on 101 quoting reference 42/341/18.
