There has been a second attempted burglary on a St Albans street, less than a day after another.

Between 9.30 and 12.30 on Sunday, February 25, burglars got into a conservatory at a property on Elm Drive, near to the junction with Woodland Drive in the Fleetville area of the city.

The burglars could not force their way into the house so they left.

This incident took place just around the corner from the scene of three other incidents over the weekend on Oakwood Drive and Hazelwood Drive.

Anyone with any information on the Elm Drive burglary has been asked to contact 101 and give the crime reference F1/18/959.
