Couple confront burglar

An elderly couple confronted a burglar who had broken into their home at the weekend.

The thief broke into the house on Lime Grove Walk through a rear door at 6.15am on Saturday, May 7.

The 89-year-old homeowners were woken by the break-in and confronted the burglar, who fled the scene. He made off with a wallet containing around £70 in cash.

The culprit is described as a white male, 5ft 10in, aged between 20 and 30, wearing a baseball cap and a grey sweatshirt top.

Police said that the man had been seen trying to open a door of another house in the area earlier the same morning. Witnesses should contact police on 0345 123 33 33.
