SHOTGUN-TOTING robbers burst into a house and stole thousands of pounds.

A woman and two men were in the home in Halstead Hill, Goffs Oak, during the armed robbery on Thursday.

Two robbers forced their way into the house after knocking on the front door at 6.15pm.

They searched the house and threatened the occupants before escaping.

No one was injured.

Both robbers are white, in their early 40s and with Essex accents.

The first is described as 5ft 9in tall, wearing a black bomber style jacket, dark tracksuit bottoms and a black beanie style hat.

He was clean shaven and has a long gaunt face.

The second is described as clean shaven and 6ft 2in tall.

He was wearing a grey hooded jumper, blue jeans, white trainers and a black beanie style hat.

Detective sergeant Graeme Smith said: "The victims are understandably distressed by this incident.

"We are appealing for people to come forward if they think they may have seen these men in the area before or after the time of the offence.

"We are keen to trace a potential witness who may have been driving a black Rover 75 vehicle in Halstead Hill at approximately 6.50pm."

If you are that person or have any information call the investigating team on 01992 533223.
