He thinks the burglars climbed up the trellis outside to get at the window of his first-floor flat where he lives with 25-year-old partner Joy French.

“If I’m honest, it looks like it had been targeted and it looks like they knew what they were looking for,” he said.

Infuriatingly for Liam, who is currently trying to start up his own graphic design business, he did not have insurance.

“I thought I wouldn’t need insurance in a village like this,” he said.

That incident came a week after two daytime burglaries in The Leys in Bidford on Wednesday 18th December.

A small safe was stolen from one address, and was later found in a neighbour’s garden having been forced open.

A watch and a ring was stolen from one of the bedrooms in the second property.

On Christmas Day in Stratford-upon0-Avon, the back windows of seven cars were smashed in Holly Walk, off Drayton Avenue, between 7pm and 10.30pm.

Police are appealing for witnesses to all of the incidents. Call them on 101.
