A burglar was caught on camera as he smashed his way into a Wigan house, causing damage worth hundreds of pounds.

Thursday, 18th November 2021, 4:54 pm

He targeted the property on Wigan Lower Road, in Standish Lower Ground, at 1.50pm on Saturday, just minutes after the woman who lived there had left.

The man, who was dressed all in black, shattered two glass doors to get inside and stole several items from the house.

Police are investigating the burglary and one line of inquiry is whether it was linked to a burglary in Lowton two days later.
