AN ALERT was triggered after a householder returned his home near Corston to find two men in his shed.

The pair, discovered at 9.15 on Wednesday night, fled towards the village in a white van, thought to be an Insignia model. One of the men was wearing a pink top and a baseball cap.

PC Mike Tripp from Malmesbury Police said: “It is clear that we still have people visiting the area to target sheds and outbuildings so please keep vigilant and secure your property the best you can.”

Anyone with information is urged to call Wiltshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
