Mayor of Bridlington's civic chains stolen
The Mayor of Bridlington's civic chains have been stolen from his home.
Police investigating the burglary believe Mayor of Bridlington Councillor Michael Charlesworth's home was broken into while he was receiving treatment in hospital.
A lap top computer and a safe containing the chains, his late wife's engagement and wedding rings and a Salvation Army charity box were also taken.
It is thought burglars entered through an insecure window at the back of the house sometime between 11am on Friday October 19 and 4.30pm on Sunday October 21. The house had been thoroughly searched and was left in disarray.

Detectives believe the suspect(s) left the house via the kitchen door, which had a key left inside the lock on the inside of the door.
The chains are worth an estimated £15,000 but are also obviously unique and of great sentimental value in the town.
Anyone who knows the whereabouts of the stolen property or may be able to provide detectives with any information is asked to call Humberside Police on 101, quoting crime reference number 1937270 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
