Antiques raided at stately home

Antiques and furnishings valued at £200,000 have been stolen from a stately home in Worcestershire.

Burglars targeted Earls Croome Court, near Upton-upon-Severn, between 16 June and 3 July.
Their haul included a 30-light chandelier, 11 oak doors, two toilets with basins, washing machines, iron gates and a kitchen sink.

The house is the former home of the Earls of Coventry and was bought by the Croome Heritage Trust in 2007.

West Mercia Police said the stolen items could be offered for resale and urged people to be on their guard.
