AN INVESTIGATION is underway after a daylight burglary in Fovant. 

Police officers are looking for witnesses who may have seen a silver/ grey Audi in the Fovant area.

The burglary happened at around 3.30pm on April 23 and police say that a man in his 80s returned to his home in Moor Hill and found three men on the driveway who swiftly left the scene in a silver or grey Audi A4.

A police spokesperson said: "Enquiries have been ongoing since the incident was reported.

"We’d like to hear from anyone who witnessed the men in the area on April 23 or anyone who witnessed a silver or grey Audi travelling at speed into the village from the direction of Fovant during the afternoon of April 23.
