School children make jewellery discovery on journey home

Echo: Do you recognise this? Do you recognise this?

TWO youngsters found a haul of jewellery as they were walking home from school.

The seven-year-old school children were walking with their mums along Kents Hill Road, in Benfleet, on Wednesday, April 2 when they saw a bright pink object behind a bush in the front garden of a house.

The budding investigators discovered the item was a pillowcase and found it contained two rings, a ladies watch and a key for a Nissan vehicle.

The mum of one of the children made local enquiries but, when she had no success, took the items home and called police.

Pc Paul Ross from Southend CID said: "The property does not match items previously reported as being taken in a burglary in the local area and we would like to find the owners. They include two rings, which look new his and hers wedding bands."

Police want to hear from anyone who recognises the items, they are asked to contact Pc Ross, Southend CID on 101.
