A BOGUS nurse may be targeting elderly people in Huddersfield.

Police today warned people to be extra-vigilant after the woman struck in Hillhouse.

They fear she may have talked her way into other homes to steal and the victims may have thought she was genuine.

The woman went to the home of a couple in their late 70s in Hillhouse Lane at 1pm on Saturday.

When they opened the door she brushed past them and searched drawers in the living-room.

The wife contacted her daughter, who rushed to the house.

The "nurse" left empty-handed.

She is white, in her mid-20s, 5ft 3in and slim, with straight, blonde shoulder-length hair.
