A GREENOCK business owner says she's sickened after her home was ransacked.

Katey Sinclair, who runs Katola's Chippy with her husband Thomas, said they were shocked when they returned to their Grey Place flat on Thursday night to find their door had been kicked in.

Among the stolen items was a white gold and diamond eternity ring worth £500 as well as a commemorative coin collection which has a collectors value of about £1500.

Katey, 33, said: "It's absolutely terrible.

"We are only a year married so the eternity ring had been put away to mark either our 10th wedding anniversary or for when we have our first baby.

"It was specially made to fit my engagement ring and my wedding ring so we can't replace it.

"Two Pandora bracelets full of charms were taken and about 400 commemorative coins, all 50 pence and £2 coins.

"They are not your standard coins - they commemorate different things like the Olympics and Beatrix Potter.

"There were over 100 different types of coins."

Katey says they have contacted the police about the theft but now don't feel safe in their own home.

She added: "We don't feel safe here.

"It's the thought of someone coming back as they know we have got other things.

"I've got no words for them."

Katey says she believes the break-in happened at about tea time on Thursday evening.

Anyone with information is asked to phone Greenock police on 101.
