POLICE are appealing for information after a thief stole children's shoes from a family home.

Thames Valley Police Oxford said the burglary happened on Iffley Road on either Thursday or Friday last week.

Officers said the thieves 'gained entry to the porch and stole children's shoes'.

Not only that, but the force said the offenders then returned the next day to take another pair.

The Oxford team raised the alarm about the theft on their Facebook page.

They asked anyone with any information about the incident to call 101, quoting reference 43190357146.
