Police are appealing for witnesses and information after an 84-year-old woman was targeted by distraction burglars in Mansfield. At around 9.45am, Thursday 12 April 2018, the woman answered her door to man purporting to be from the water board.

He entered the address, in the Bancroft Lane area, and distracted the victim in her kitchen while other suspects went upstairs and searched rooms before leaving with cash and jewellery.

The man who called at her home is white, in his early 70s, about 5ft 4ins tall and of medium build. He was wearing a chequered shirt, a navy blue jacket, a yellow sleeveless gilet and a peak cap.

Detective Constable Rachel Lee, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "This incident has left the victim very distressed.

"We’re urging residents to stay vigilant when answering the door to unknown callers. "We’d always recommend using a spyhole or door chain and, if you’re not expecting someone, don’t open the door.

"If you have any suspicions or concerns about someone’s behaviour, call the police on 999, or 101 if they aren’t currently posing a threat to you or anyone else.

"Make sure your front and back doors and windows are locked at all times, even when you’re at home. We’d also urge anyone with elderly neighbours or relatives to pass this information onto them as well, and to keep an eye out for them.

"If you see someone approaching a property and are suspicious about it, please report this to us on 101 and where possible, note any descriptive details."

Anyone with any information about this incident is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 531 of 12 April 2018.
