Police are appealing for witnesses after a would-be burglar walked into a house in Glossop before fleeing when he was disturbed.

The offender went into the property, in Castleton Green, at about 3.15pm on Tuesday, January 12, but was disturbed shortly after and ran off.

He was described as 6ft 3ins, of skinny build, and was wearing a dark coloured hoodie with the hood pulled up.

Police investigating the incident want to hear from anyone who saw a man matching that description hanging around the area around that time.

They also want to know if anyone in the surrounding area has CCTV that might have captured the suspect.

Witnesses or anyone who can help the inquiry should call Derbyshire police on 101, quoting crime reference 1730/16. Or call Crimestoppers anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
