Thieves attempting to burgle a Sheffield home in the middle of the day, fled the scene after being disturbed by the occupant's neighbours.

The burglary took place at a property in Little Norton Lane, Meadowhead at 2.20pm yesterday.

The offenders were disturbed by neighbours, which caused them to flee the scene empty-handed.

A spokesman for the Sheffield West Local Policing Team said: "House burglary on Little Norton Lane at 14:20, door kicked in in attempt to gain entry, offenders disturbed by neighbours and ran away, nothing taken."
