A student’s bedroom was so messy she did not realise she had been BURGLED for almost a week.
Yi Wei spent several days searching for an expensive purse and designer handbags after struggling to find them in her jumbled flat.
The Chinese student, 24, could not find her pink Gucci purse when she looked in her room in the house she shared with another Chinese student and two British non-students on August 3.
The purse, which cost £300, contained Miss Wei’s student ID card, £300, 200 Euros, cards and photographs.
Stephen Welch, prosecuting, told Hull Crown Court: “The complainant didn’t seem to be aware she had been burgled. A search of the room, with the aid of a friend, failed to recover it.”
