A 90-year-old woman was the victim of a cruel distraction burglary in Bletchley last week.

Police are now appealing for witnesses to the burglary which happened at around 2pm on Wednesday when the offenders gained entry to a house in Severn Way by forcing a door open.

One offender stood in front of the victim and talked to her as a second man went upstairs and searched the property.

Around five minutes later, two more men entered the property and carried out an untidy search.

They then left with carrier bags full of jewellery.

The first offender is a white man, around 6ft tall, with short blonde hair and of a slim build. He was wearing a long black coat over black trousers and black shoes.

The three other offenders were wearing dark clothing.

If you have any information contact detective constable Chris Oakman from Milton Keynes police station on 101.
