POLICE are appealing for information after two men were seen acting suspiciously in Whiteparish.

An attempted burglary happened at a property in Dean Lane on December 30. The victims pulled into their driveway at 7.33pm and were confronted by two men who appeared to be trying to get into the house.

The men then left, making excuses that they were ‘looking for Romsey’.

Damage to the front door lock was later discovered. Another local resident found a man on her driveway in similar circumstances at about 6pm.

PC Trevor Morgan from the priority crime team at Salisbury Police Station would like to hear from anyone who may have seen two men walking around the village, particularly in the area of Dean Lane, The Green and Highlands Way.

The men are described as both wearing dark coloured hoodies and dark jeans, and aged in their late teens to early 20s, of slim to medium build and about 5ft 11ins to 6ft tall.

Anyone with information can contact PC Morgan on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
