CCTV captured the moment a burglar snuck into an autistic man's home in Bromsgrove while his back was turned as he fed his dog.

Jay Grant, who lives in a supported bungalow in Beech Road, was home alone when a man walked into his house and stole his iPad, which he relies on to communicate with others.

Jay, aged 24, told the Advertiser: "Due to my autism, the iPad provided me with communication support and it has deeply affected my quality of life and communicating with others.

"It has put a big strain on my day to day function without the iPad."

The item stolen was a gold iPad Pro in a blue Pure Sense protective case.
