We want to trace three people in connection with a burglary in Cottingham, East Yorkshire on 1 December 2017.

Two men were searching through a skip at a property on Hornbeam Walk around 2.30pm when a 77-year-old woman who lives in the house came outside and told them to go away.

The men kept her talking while it's believed a third person entered the house and stole a number of rings and went through her handbag.

One of the men has been described as in his 20s, thin and clean shaven, with dark scruffy hair. 

An E-Fit of the other man has been released. He's described as an older man also with dark scruffy hair. The other person was unseen.

The incident was reported a number of days later. If you have any information please call 101 quoting log 182 of 7/12/17.
