A man forced his way into a Laxton Drive home and stole money.

The incident happened on Monday 11th May.

A police spokesperson said: “Please be aware there has been an increase lately of bogus callers making offers to undertake roofing and guttering repairs and occasionally asking for the householder to accompany them to a bank to withdraw money.

“Elderly people seem to be particularly targeted.

“If you become aware of anyone being approached in this manner please call the police on phone number 101 immediately. Please note vehicle registration numbers and pass this to the police.”
