Police are appealing for information after burglars tried to break in through the front door of a house in Hatfield yesterday.

Police were called at 4.22pm yesterday after the attempted burglary in Crop Common, Hatfield.

It is thought that the offenders struck between 9am and 3pm.

A police spokeswoman said: “We were called by a resident saying she believed someone had tried to break into her house.

“Offenders have used an unknown implement on the front door in order to try and gain access.

“They didn’t manage to get inside and nothing was taken.

“There were marks along the door where the lock is - sort of scratches - which she has noticed when she came home.”

The spokeswoman said this incident was not currently being linked with any others and no arrests had been made.
