The posters, advertising the films Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice and The Man with the Golden Gun, were worth several hundred pounds.

The Goldfinger poster is a rare Italian first edition from 1964.

Polie are appealing for help from anyone who may have seen these posters for sale or seen them up in a house anywhere.

Detective Sergeant Claudia Musson from the Volume Crime Unit said: “I am aware that there is nearly a month passed since this incident and we have been using this time to not only follow lines of enquiries to catch those responsible, but also to try and trace the posters.

“We are keeping an open mind as to whether the home was targeted for these particular items and we would ask if anyone has been offered similar items for sale or indeed have seen them suddenly appear on display in someone’s house, that they contact us.”

The burglary took place between 11.30pm on Thursday, January 21 and 8.30am on Friday, January 22.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Volume Crime Unit on 101 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
