She was confronted by two men in her hall who demanded money.

A small sum of money and a bank card were taken by the men who then left the house.

Both men were described as being aged around 30 and wearing dark clothing.

Detective Sergeant Brian Reid said: "This was a terrifying ordeal and the occupant, a woman aged in her 60's, has been left traumatised."
