Hunt for County Durham armed raiders

Police are searching for a group of men who are believed to have shot out the windows of a flat in County Durham.

Officers were called to the unoccupied property on Church Street, Shildon, in the early hours of Wednesday.

A group of men wearing balaclavas were reported to have tried to force entry into the flat using the gun.

The men fled the scene in a four wheel drive vehicle before officers arrived. It has been described by Durham Police as an "isolated" incident.
