A gold necklace worth more than £10,000 has been stolen from a property in South Ockendon.

The necklace, which is of great sentimental value, was taken along with a Michael Kors watch from a house on Cheelson Road overnight between Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 August.

This necklace is very distinctive and police would encourage anyone who recognises it or has seen it offered for sale to call Grays CID on 101 quoting the crime reference number 42/126651/19.

Anyone who lives in the area and has CCTV or dash cam footage that could assist with the investigation is urged to get in touch.
