British athlete Andy Turner has pleaded for help in finding the perpetrators after he was burgled while attending his mother's funeral.

Turner, who won European gold in the 110m hurdles in 2010 and World Championship bronze a year later, made the appeal after the incident in Nottinghamshire on Thursday.

As reported by Eurosport, Turner was at the cremation of his 58-year-old mother Yvonne during the incident, which saw the theft of his car and numerous personal belongings.
