CROOKS broke into a Kirby Cross home by smashing a conservatory window.

The burglars broke the window at the back of the house in Frinton Road.

Officers are appealing for information, particularly from anyone who spotted two males who loitering near the alleyway leading from Frinton Road through to Bemerton Gardens.
