Burglary & Attempted Burglary

Between 5.00pm and 8.00pm on Friday 9th February, a house in Tempest Road was burgled.  Entry was via a rear kitchen window and a quantity of cash was stolen.

We have also had report of an attempted burglary of a house on Birstall Road (close to the village centre/triangle area).  There is damage to the rear fence of the property and footprints on the rear door suggesting an attempt to kick it open, but no entry was gained.  This is believed to have occurred between 2.00am on Thursday 8th and 1.00pm on Friday 9th February.

Were you in either of these areas around these times, did you see or hear anything suspicious ?  Please report any information by dialling 101 the police non-emergency number.
