Burglars broke into a Harpenden home this morning prompting the police to launch an appeal for witnesses.

Criminals forced entry into the Luton Road property by smashing a window at the rear of the address.

They made off with jewellery, an Xbox 360 console along with controllers and a number of video games.

Two men were seen in the area at around 10.50am and walked away from the property in the direction of Farm Avenue.

The first man is described as white, in his early 20s, of medium build and around 5ft 9ins tall, and wearing a yellow high-visibility jacket.

The second man is of similar appearance but with a stocky build and was wearing an orange high-visibility jacket.

He was also carrying a bright yellow satchel-type bag, similar to those used by people delivering newspapers or leaflets.
