Euston couple tied up and threatened by burglars

A man and a woman were tied up and threatened by two hooded burglars who broke into their home in Suffolk and took antiques and jewellery.

Two men forced their way through a window of the house in Euston near Thetford on Tuesday night and threatened a couple living there.

They were forced to hand over possessions including jewellery and antiques in the hour-long ordeal.

They were then tied up and left in their bedroom before the men fled.

The burglary happened at about 2130 GMT.

Neither the man nor the woman were hurt but a police spokesman said they were left "extremely shaken" by the burglary.

A blue Volvo was stolen from outside the house but was later found abandoned nearby in the village.

Both the burglars wore hoods and one of them spoke with a London or Essex accent.
