The haul included a black iPod Touch, a black iPod Classic and a variety of photographic equipment including a black Canon AE-1 35mm SLR, a Canon 5D Mark II, a XOUGNU shutter control, a fish eye lens, a silver 35mm Olympus and a Canon camera bag. The blue Skoda, registration SA56 ZFW contained a Tom Tom satnav, CDs and a portfolio of photographic course work belonging to the student.

Police want to hear from anyone who saw someone leaving a property in Harborough Road and driving off in the Skoda between 5am and noon on Wednesday, October 10.

The car might not have needed to be used until realised it was gone. The student area is only a few minutes walk into the town so they wouldn't need to use a car.
