View | Download (PNG - 27 KB)

We are appealing for information after antique jewellery was stolen from a woman on a train in Hull.

The theft happened between 7.56am and 8.04am on Thursday 29 June.

A grey Osprey rucksack was taken from the luggage compartment on the Northern train service that arrived at Hull at 7.56am. It happened while the train was at the station.

The rucksack contained distinctive antique jewellery worth thousands of pounds.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who was on the train or at the station at the time of the offence, who has any information which could help the investigation.

If you saw anyone with the rucksack, or saw anything out of the ordinary on the train, please call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text information to 61016, quoting reference 136 29/06/2017.

The items of jewellery were of a significant financial value but also sentimental value to the victim and we are hoping to be able to trace them so they can be returned to the rightful owner.

The items are listed below:

  • A crescent shaped Art Deco brooch, with three rows of stones.
  • A white gold heart-shaped pendant on a white gold chain
  • A white gold tennis bracelet set with a lobster claw clasp
  • A pair of white gold earrings with a sapphire and a small diamond at the top and larger sapphire underneath
  • A small Victorian engagement ring
  • A Cartier pear shaped diamond solitaire ring
  • Yellow Gold eternity ring with five diamonds graduating in size



Notes for editors:

There are no photos available of the jewellery at this stage.
