A house was burgled in Hitchin on Friday evening, with thieves smashing in through a patio door window.

Between 6.15pm and 7.30pm, someone entered the back garden of a house in Wellingham Avenue, off Bedford Road, and got into the house by breaking a window panel.

They searched the property before leaving in a direction currently unknown to police.

A force spokesman said that at this stage nothing is thought to have been taken.

Anyone with information should call 101 and quote crime reference G1/18/140.
