The son of an elderly woman left terrified and bruised after a burglary is offering a £1,000 reward to help catch the culprits.

Police described the Lenwade burglary as “appalling” and said it appeared to have been carried out because the two men wanted money for drugs.

The son of the 81-year-old widow, who asked not to be named, is offering a £1000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

Her ordeal took place in St Faith's Close on Friday, November 23 when two men broke into the woman's bungalow at about 9pm.
