Officers received a call from a witness reporting that his neighbour’s house had been broken into and items had been taken from the house. The man on the phone said he heard noises coming from outside. At first he thought it could have been people dumping rubbish into a skip on his drive way.

However he realised the noises were coming from his next door neighbour’s house.

He checked to see if there were any vehicles outside and then went into his back garden, where he could see that the patio windows had been smashed and a man was walking out, carrying something.

He then heard someone shouting ‘get out of the house’.

Police said he then saw and heard a red car, believed to be a red Seat Altea XL (possibly on fake plates) rev its engine and drive off. A safe had been stolen from the bedroom and a bank card was later used to make purchases and withdrawals.

A spokesman said: "Any video doorbell footage from the surrounding area, from the days before the incident showing a red car driving around the area, possibly scouting the area, would be very useful.
