Three men armed with poles and bats have broken into a west Suffolk home.

The incident happened between 12.45pm and 1pm on Monday at an address in Windmill Hill in Exning, near Newmarket.

A grey BMW 3 Series pulled up on the driveway of the house and three men got out of the car.

Entry was gained into the home after the rear doors were forced open, with an untidy search then carried out.

The suspects were disturbed by the owner returning home and ran away into the back garden, where they damaged a fence whilst going into a neighbour's garden, before getting back into the BMW and leaving.

All three men were seen to be carrying poles and bats.

It is not believed any property was stolen during the break in.
