A seven-month old puppy has been sadly drowned in the bath during a burglary.

Detectives have called the incident ‘cruel’ and urge anyone with infromation to come forward.

Burglars broke into a house in Cobholm Close,  Great Yarmouth in Norfolk on Wednesday 5 April and stole a number of items including a computer.

It is believed Benji was drowned by the burglars.

Benji’s owner Mark Phillips said the puppy was “part of the family” and his death had left them “devastated”.

Detective Sergeant Richard Wallis said: “This is a particularly cruel crime.

“I would urge anyone who may have seen any suspicious behaviour in the area at around the time of the burglary to come forward.”

Anyone with information should contact Great Yarmouth CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111
