Burglars broke into the home of a woman in her 80s

A woman in her 80s was forced to sit and watch as burglars stole jewellery from her home last night.

As she prepared to go to bed, the woman heard glass smashing and saw four or five men, wearing dark clothing and facial coverings, enter her home through patio doors.

The raid happened at about 10pm in Crossing Road, Palgrave, near Diss.

One of the burglars, described as about 6ft and of large build, told her to sit down and stayed with her while the other men searched her home.

The woman was unhurt but a quantity of jewellery is believed to have been stolen.
