An attempted break-in occurred on Friday at a house on Loughborough Road. The method of entry was by trying to cut a large hole ( about 18 inches diameter ) in a rear double glazed window, presumably with a glass cutter. Fortunately the attempt failed.
This is not a common method used to gain entry and the police would be very keen to know if there has been any other incidents of this type. As no entry was gained, it would be easy to assume that ( for instance ) a bird had flown into the window causing it to break and therefore not reporting it as an attempted break-in.
If you know of any similar incidents that have not yet been reported, please do so by dialling 101 the police non-emergency number.
