Would-be burglars who attempted to make their way into a Dereham home through a back window were disturbed before they could take anything, police believe.

The attempted burglary happened in King’s Park between 12.40am and 5am on Sunday November 25.

Police asked anyone with information to contact DC Sarah Warner at Thetford CID on 101, or to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
