Two would-be burglars who tried to break into a house in Poulton under cover of darkness are being sought by police.

The raiders attempted to force their way into the home, on Garstang Road East in the town, unsuccessfully and were caught on CCTV in the process.

The patio doors of the property were forced during the attack, but no entry was gained.

The offence happened on May 29 at around 11pm, but police have only just released details.

A Lancashire Police spokesman said: “We are looking to speak to the two men in the CCTV images in connection with an offence of attempted burglary in a dwelling at a house on Garstang Road East, Poulton.

“Anyone with any information should contact police on 101 with reference BC1407488.”
