Thieves posing as water company workers tricked their way into a pensioner’s home.
The 82-year-old woman was targeted on November 16 in Clockhouse Lane, Romford at 12.50pm.
The thieves told the woman that they were from the water board and were replacing copper piping in the area.
Nothing was stolen, but the pair had entered the bedroom.
The suspects are described as white males aged 40 to 45.
Anyone with information should call the police on 101.
