PENSIONERS are being warned to be vigilant against distraction burglars after three men barged their way into the Felixstowe home of an elderly woman.

The three men knocked at the door of the woman, who lives in Mill Lane, just after 5.35pm yesterday and when she opened the door they walked straight in.

Suffolk Police said one of the men then walked with the woman into her kitchen while the other two searched through the belongings in her bedroom.

It is not known at this stage whether anything was stolen.

One of the men involved is described as very tall and he had “bushy stubble” on his face. He was wearing a blue boiler suit.
