Blue Police Lamp

A West End couple awoke to discover intruders in their house yesterday night.

Burglars had scaled a 6ft fence and  forced a rear door to gain entry to a house in Upmill Close at around 1 am Wednesday morning October 10.

By the time the householders, a 35-year-old woman and a 42-year-old man, got up and turned the hall lights on, the burglars had fled  and some small electrical items, cash and a wallet had been taken.
