A snoozing Manchester United fan had £2,000 worth of football memorabilia stolen from his home after going to bed for an afternoon nap. The man had gone to sleep upstairs at his home on High Street, Accrington, at 2.30pm on Sunday.
When he awoke an hour later and went into his living room he found that two large frames containing signed United shirts had been stolen from his walls.
The shirts, valued at £1,000 each, were in silver coloured frames. One contained a 1993 home strip signed by Eric Cantona, and a certificate of authenticity.
The second shirt, signed by Gary Neville and also accompanied by a certificate, was from the 2004 season.
