ITEMS belonging to the couple who died in a suspected murder-suicide in Bucklebury last week have been stolen.

Grieving relatives of the couple were targeted as some clothing including Concorde memorabilia, Concorde cufflinks and Concorde related items were taken between 11pm on Sunday (April 7) and 11am on Monday (April 8).

Last week, police said that they were treating the deaths as a murder and suicide but they confirmed that they were not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.

Today they are appealing for information following the burglary in Chapel Lane, Bucklebury, West Berkshire.

Unknown offenders have gained access to the house, and items stolen belonged to Anthony Meadows, 84, who along with his wife Paula Meadows, 85, were found dead at their home in Chapel Lane on Tuesday April 2.

Investigating officer, detective inspector Alice Broad of Local Area CID based at Newbury, said: "We are investigating this burglary in which it’s thought a number of items linked to Concorde and Anthony Meadows’s work as a pilot were stolen.

"These items have sentimental value to the family who have recently lost both their mother and father just last week.

"We are appealing for anyone with information as to the whereabouts of these items.

"We would ask anyone who may have been offered these items for sale to please get in touch with Thames Valley Police.

"Additionally I would also like to send a direct message to the people to look into their conscience and return the items that hold valuable memories for the family.

"The family have had to take appropriate measures to remove valuables and memorabilia for safe storage away from the property, the attached property remains occupied and we are offering support and advice in light of this incident.

"There will also be additional patrols as a result of this incident."

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting reference 43190106038 or if they wish to report anonymously they can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
