Thieves stole "distinct" boxing gloves signed by modern legends of the sport during a burglary in Leeds.

They were stolen alongside a backstage pass - signed by Pacquiao and US boxer Timothy Bradley - from a home in York Road, Osmandthorpe,

The burglary happened on Tuesday, October 4 but police have today released an appeal for information.
