Officers are appealing for information following a distraction burglary in Lynn carried out by men purporting to be gardeners.

The incident took place at an address in Spring Close between noon and 2pm on Tuesday, December 29.

Two men were carrying out gardening work at the property when at some point one of them entered the property and stole a handbag from the address.

The offenders were described as aged in their 20’s and wearing dark clothing. They were believed to have been driving a white flatbed van.
