Bogus worker robs elderly man in Lowestoft

A man who claimed to be working for a water company burgled the house of a man in his 80s in Suffolk and stole a large quantity of money.

He called at the home in Normanston Drive, Lowestoft, at about 1230 BST and took the money after searching the property.

The man is described as white, aged in his late teens to 30s, about 5ft (1.52m), with dark hair.

Police initially said the victim was a woman but this was later rectified.
