Police believe this car may have been used in the offence.

Police were called to Portland Road at around 6.30pm on Friday 1 December. The elderly woman said that three men had knocked on her door claiming there'd been a gas leak. She refused entry but was pushed to the floor as the men barged in. They searched the house but left empty handed.

The offenders are described as:

1) white, in his 30s, around 6ft tall, of a slim build with a thin face and facial hair

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101.

2) white, in his late 30s, 6ft tall, of a large build. He was wearing a black zip-up coat with white writing on the breast pocket and a beanie hat.

3) The only description we have is that he is white.

The car pictured is believed to have been used in the offence.

Even though the images are not very clear, police said they hoped they might just jog someone's memory.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101.
