[Two suspects sought following burglaries]

Detectives investigating the burglary of two flats in Chelsea have released CCTV of two men they would like to speak to.

On Monday, 4 December, police were called at 17.44hrs to reports of two burglaries at residential flats on Stadium Street, SW10.

During the first burglary, the suspects entered the flat by kicking the door open whilst the victim was out. They left empty handed.

The second burglary took place in the same building whilst the victim was away at work. The suspects entered the property by kicking the door open and made off with more than £20,000 worth of personal property including jewellery, cash, cards and Christmas presents.

The burglaries were reported to have taken place between 13:00hrs and 17:40hrs.

The suspects left the scene in a light brown vehicle.

One man is described as black, over 6ft 6inches tall, of slim build and wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, black gloves and grey trainers with white soles.

The second man is described as black, approximately 5ft 7inches tall with short afro hair, wearing a black jacket with a grey hoodie underneath, black jeans and white trainers.

PC Mark Carter, who is investigating for Kensington and Chelsea police, said: "These were brazen burglaries just before Christmas which have left the victims traumatised and upset. I would urge anyone with information to get in touch."
