A boy returning from school unwittingly halted a burglary in March yesterday.

A group of three men fled the scene at a house on Wimblington Road at around 3.40pm on Wednesday after the teenage boy arrived home with a friend.

The men are believed to have broken into the house by forcing a rear door patio before carrying out an “untidy search,” according to police.

They made off in a blue BMW 4X4 and drove along Wimblington Road before turning left towards Mill Road.

A police spokesman said: “The three men are all described as white; one is described as large build with dark hair and was wearing a white t-shirt and dark trousers.
