Kate Barrett, 36, has written a thank you letter to the burglars who broke into her house, and apologized for not having “particularly expensive tastes.”

“Dear Burglars, Thanks for popping by the other night and we’re sorry we didn’t have more for you to take,” she wrote in the letter.

She wrote that she and her partner, Dan Owens, were “disappointed” the thieves had ignored her VHS video and cassette collection.

“As you now know, we don’t have particularly expensive tastes so there’s no need to come in again, unless you would like to take my collection of VHS videos and cassettes — Owens is very disappointed you didn’t take these first time round.”

The couple were both away and Barrett got home first to discover the “ransacked” house.

Dan, 34, said, “The burglars had gone through every room, but there wasn’t too much to take — some cash, a camera, an iPod, but nothing too major.”
