RAIDERS attempted to break into a Leeds Road home – but fled after they were disturbed by a neighbour.
The offenders, who arrived and left in two cars, tried to break into a property near Syngenta at around 10.15pm on Tuesday night.
A neighbour heard the sound of breaking glass and the gang then made off in two cars parked in the car park at Leeds Road playing fields.
One of the cars, said to be a silver Peugeot, drove off towards the town centre.
The second, a dark hatchback, headed in the direction of Bradley.
Police are appealing for anyone who saw the two cars, described as being driven away erratically, to get in touch.
