We are appealing for information after fossils were among items stolen during a burglary at a property in Buxton.
Offenders broke in to a property in Hardwick Square West at some point between 27 and 29 December and stole a large quantity of items including two guitars, one of which was a Russ Wooton custom made guitar, a mandolin, jewellery, power tools and a large quantity of fossils including dinosaur bones.
Significant damage was also caused to the property during the burglary.
