A pensioner was tied up by two masked burglars while she was watching The One Show in her Morley home.

The burglary took place last night, Wednesday July 18 at around 7.15pm on Morley Road.

A spokesman for Derbyshire Police said: “Two men, who are described as black and were wearing dark coloured clothing and masks, broke in through the front door of the house.

“They then tied up the woman, stole a number of items of jewellery and then left in a small black car.

“Were you in the area at the time? Did you see anything unusual in the area at the time or in the days leading up to the burglary? Or were you driving through the area and have dashcam footage that may have captured the offenders?”

Anyone with information should contact Derbyshire Police on 101 quoting reference number 18*338034 and asking for DC Daniel Handley-Farrell.
