'Heartless' thief steals Christmas gifts in Douglas

A "heartless" burglar stole a family's gifts as they slept in the late hours of Christmas Day, Manx Police said.

The intruder sneaked in through the back door of the house in Primrose Avenue, Douglas, taking a games console, laptop computer and cash.

Police described it as a "heartless crime" and appealed for anybody offered a PlayStation 4 or white HP Pavilion laptop to contact them.

Det Con Sam Cannell said the burglary was a "stark reminder" to be vigilant.
