A care worker is "heartbroken" after her uninsured £54,000 life savings were stolen in a daytime burglary.
Sharon Hall, 53, of Andover, Hampshire, kept the money in a briefcase in her spare room. She had put money aside from her salary and sold items at car boot sales.
"I was saving it up for personal reasons, because I got separated and I don't know what the future holds. In hindsight I wish I had put the money into a bank account" she said.
Hampshire Police appealed for witnesses and urged people not to keep large amounts of cash at home.
