Carryduff home robbed by bogus caller

A house in Castlereagh was robbed during what police are calling "a distraction burglary" on Friday.

A man called to a house on the Thorndale Road South in Carryduff at about 1430 GMT and claimed he needed to check the water supply.

The woman who answered the door let him in and the man went to the back of the house before running some taps and leaving.

The woman then discovered her handbag, containing a sum of cash, was missing.

Police are appealing to anyone who has information about the incident to contact them.
