Detective Sergeant Ian Derbyshire of Lancashire CID said: “Just before the burglary, three men were seen riding a red scooter in Pope Lane.

“They would have stood out as they were not wearing helmets and were riding three on board.

“We would ask anyone who saw these men or who has any dash-cam footage of the moped to get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting reference SA1805240 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
