A couple were attacked by three masked men with baseball bats after answering the door of their Berkshire home.

The 52-year-old woman was hit on the head after opening the door of the house in Colyton Way, Purley, near Reading, at 2100 BST on Easter Sunday.

The men, who demanded money, continued to hit woman and her partner, 59, before ransacking the house.

The three escaped with a cash tin and jewellery. The couple needed hospital treatment for head injuries.

Police said the men were dressed in black and were wearing ski masks and balaclavas.
