Two men seen running from a house they tried to break into are being hunted by police.

The pair attempted to force their way inside a family home in Galloway Road, Fleetwood, between 8.40 and 8.50pm yesterday, police said. Nobody was home at the time.

The duo failed but caused 'significant' damage to doors and windows, a spokesman for the Fleetwood neighbourhood policing team added.

They fled through a back garden and were seen "interfering with property" at the back of a house on Darbishire Road by a neighbour who called police.

They were then seen running off towards Poulton Road, the spokesman said.

No description of the men has been released, but officers have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
