Several items of stolen jewellery, including a replica of the famous One Ring from The Lord of the Rings, have been found by police.
The jewellery was retrieved after a spate of burglaries in Gloucester last week and officers want to find their rightful owners.
The ring and two watches were found by police after at least six break-ins that happened between Monday night and Tuesday morning last week.
Police are asking for anyone who recognises the items to come forward.
The ring is distinctive as it is based on the ring that contained the evil power of Dark Lord Sauron from JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings novels.

The ring has Elvish characters on the inside but the words are of Mordor, the dark lands where hobbit Frodo Baggins, from the Shire, had to take the ring to be destroyed.
It was coveted by the creature Gollum, who called it “his precious”.
Although it gave the bearer invisibility and long-life, it also corrupted those who wore it.
The break-ins occurred on Blenheim Road and Vauxhall Road in Tredworth area of Gloucester.
Police are appealing for anyone with information about the break-ins to get in touch on 101 and ask for PC Joanne Cryer or PC Al Johnson from the Gloucester City Police.
