A SET of specialist chef knives have been stolen during a house burglary.

The homeowner returned to the property in Melton Mill Lane, High Melton, Doncaster, to find the back door had been forced open.

Among the possessions taken was a set of Shun knives in their protective cases.

Officers want to trace the knives and are asking people to be vigilant in case they are offered any which match the description.

Acting inspector Amanda Hunter said: “We do not believe these knives have been taken to cause injury to anybody.
