Haslemere burglars raid 98-year-old woman's home

Burglars broke into a 98-year-old woman's home in Haslemere and searched the property in front of her.

Surrey Police said the two men walked into the living room of the house in Weycombe Road on Tuesday evening.

The elderly woman tried to call police but one of the men stopped her.

Officers said the burglars took two bags, one containing the woman's purse, and another containing antique jewellery.

Police said a number of the stolen items were later found by a member of the public in the Woolmer Hill area, but some of the jewellery and cash from the purse was missing.
