POLICE are appealing for information after an attempted break in and a burglary in Darlington.

Overnight on Thursday a window in the door of a house on Bushel Hill Grove, Mowden, was smashed in what seems to have been an attempt to gain entry.

The perpetrator may have been disturbed and police are calling on anyone who remembers seeing anyone suspicious in the area that night to contact them.

Officers are also appealing for information about a shed burglary on Lazenby Grove, a short distance away from Bushell Hill Grove, on the same night.

Anyone with information should contact 101 quoting crime reference number 109 of June 13.
