Police sent a helicopter and a dog van to Harold Wood this morning (Tuesday) to catch two suspected burglars.

They were alerted just before 9.50am, when a bystander spotted the pair running out of a house in Homeway. They had tried to force open a patio door, but failed.

A 14-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of burglary, but the second suspect is still at large.

If you have any information about his whereabouts, call the police on 101, or phone Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
