A SAFE containing birth certificates, passports and jewellery was stolen from a family home in Oxford.

Thieves broke into the house in Boundary Brook Road, Iffley Field, some time between 11.30am and 8.30pm on Wednesday.

Police have said it is thought the burglars forced entry to the property through a ground floor window.

The raiders then ransacked the master bedroom and took the safe as well as a spare set of car keys.

Anyone with information can call 101.
