Car taken from drive in burglary

A woman was left locked in her home after burglars took a handbag containing her house and car keys.

Her white 2006 Ford Focus was then driven off the driveway sometime between 12.30am and 2.25am on Thursday, August 22.

When officers arrived at the home on Sunningdale Avenue, Heanor they were forced to climb through a window to gain access.

The victim had gone to bed at 12.30am and locked all the doors. When she woke in the night, she looked outside to see her car had gone. It is not known how burglars got in. A laptop was also taken from the living room.

If you have any information, call police on 101.
