A CHUBBY 20-year-old and an older man are believed responsible for a distraction burglary at the home of an elderly person in Bromham.

Police are warning people to be on their guard after the two men struck at around 3.30pm on Tuesday. One of the men knocked at the door and then after confusing the home owner went inside.

PCSO Sam Burnside said: "Once this male was inside, a further male has appeared and also entered the property. These two males then searched the house and stole various items.

"One male was described as chubby build, approximately 20 years old whilst the other was an older male but also large build."

Police would like anyone who saw people acting suspiciously in the village to contact them on 101.
