CALLOUS burglars dressed in 'boiler suits' climbed into a hospice before escaping with bags of household goods donated by the community.

A man and a woman were captured on CCTV entering the Sue Ryder Hospice in Nettlebed, near Henley, on two occasions earlier this week.

The first burglary happened between 3am and 5am on Monday, when the pair were filmed climbing over a locked gate into an area where charity donations are left by members of the public.

They appeared to be dressed in boiler suits and left after taking bags of donated household property.

Two days later, between 6am and 7am on Wednesday, a man and a woman were again captured on CCTV climbing over a locked gate and taking more bags of household goods.

After taking the items, they escaped in a vehicle that looked similar to a silver Mercedes car.

Thames Valley Police is appealing for information following the burglaries and called for members of the community to come forward if they had been offered household goods.
