A GANG of five burglars wielding knives and a meat cleaver have forced their way into a house in Clacton and threatened the occupant.

Detective Sergeant Daniel Jeffries said: “We would like to speak with anyone who was in the area at the time or can provide any information around these men. Also, we are seeking any information around a small red car and a black Ford Focus that was seen in the area at the time of the incident.”
