Four arrests have been made in connection with a break-in which left a 77-year-old widow traumatised.

The Gorleston home on Maureen Mellors was broken into on July 11, while she had been visiting friends, and saw a number of highly-sentimental items stolen.

Mrs Mellors has been left traumatised by the burglary and she is so terrified to be alone in her Western Road bungalow that family members have moved in with her.

Police have arrested two men in their 30s, a man in his 60s and a woman in her 20s in connection with the incident.

All four have been released under investigation, with no charges made.

Mrs Mellors' family have offered a £10,000 reward to anybody offering information that leads police to a successful prosecution.

Daughter Elaine Quinn said: 'We want to do anything we can to give her peace of mind that those responsible have been prosecuted.' Call Great Yarmouth CID on 101.
