Chorley woman bound and gagged by armed robbers

A woman was handcuffed by armed robbers who burst into her home in Lancashire.

Three men threatened the victim with a knife at the house on Worthy Street, Chorley, at midday on Friday.

They handcuffed the victim and covered her mouth with tape, before stealing cash and a large amount of jewellery from around the house.

Police said the woman was uninjured in the robbery, but had been left "extremely shaken".

They have asked anyone with any information to contact them.
