Police appeal after attempted burglary in Woodford Green
Police are appealing for information after an attempted burglary in Turpin’s Lane, Woodford Green.
Between 11.30am and 2.45pm on Thursday, attempts were made to break in to a house through the front door.
No entry was made but the door was damaged.
Det Con James Smith at Loughton CID said: “Quite an effort was made to try and break in to this house, possibly with a view to stealing a vehicle which was parked on the driveway.
“The only reason this victim did not have their vehicle stolen was that they had a good quality front door which had been locked correctly.”
