Hundreds of pounds were stolen from a home in the latest door-knocking scam to hit the Horsham district home.

Police said a fraudster tricked their way into a property in Shooting Field, Steyning, on Friday May 31.

The theft took place at about 6pm and police are appealing for anyone with information to contact 101, quoting the reference number 0419 02/06/19
