Three would-be burglars who tried to break into a house in Albourne were captured on camera as they left empty-handed.

The trio drove off in a beige Volvo estate car after what police say is believed to be an attempted burglary in Church Lane on Wednesday, May 25.

The three men were spotted acting suspiciously in the road and were then seen at the rear of the property around 8.45am. Before they were disturbed, they tried to get into the property, causing damage to a glass conservatory and a gate, say police.

They made off to the right along Church Lane as they left and got into the Volvo estate that had been parked under a tree around a bend in the road.

Anyone who saw them in the area at any time leading up to the incident or who recognises them is asked to email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting serial 215 of 25/05. Alternatively, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 (www.crimestoppers-uk.org).
