Burglars broke into a home in the north of Norwich yesterday and escaped with £800.

The break-in happened between 11.20am and 1.10pm when suspects broke into the home in Silver Road after forcing open a conservatory door.

Offenders then searched the home before being disturbed by a neighbour.

The man challenged the burglars who claimed to be carrying out work at the property, before running out of the house heading towards Sprowston Road and making off with about £800 in cash.

•Anyone with information should contact Det Con Sharon Fish at Norwich CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
