Signed photographs of boxing legend Muhammad Ali have been stolen during a raid at a house in Cleveleys.

A wooden summer house at the property in West Drive was broken into on Thursday June 27 at 3.50am with thousands of pounds of property stolen.

They stole items including signed photos of Muhammad Ali with Elvis Presley, Muhammad Ali with The Beatles and a photo of the England Rugby World Cup Winners 2003.

They also took an Xbox 360, a PS3 and a Wii, as well as a number of bottles of alcohol and whisky decanters.

Det Sgt Kevin Wright said: “This is a high value burglary and we want to do all we can to reunite the owners with their property, particularly with some of the more personal items such as the signed photographs.

“Somebody somewhere must know where these signed photos currently are and I would urge them to get in contact with us to let us know. I would also like to speak with anybody who may have been offered for sale any of these items over the past week.”

Call police on 101.
