Pensioners left shaken after separate County Antrim burglaries

Two pensioners have been left badly shaken after separate burglaries in County Antrim.

A number of masked men entered a house in Merville Garden Village, Newtownabbey, after 20:00 GMT on Thursday and made off with a sum of cash.

A short time later, three men stole a handbag containing cash from a 90-year-old woman at her home in Abbey Park, east Belfast.

Both pensioners were not injured.
