A 102-year-old man has been robbed at his home by three men in what police are calling a "despicable and cowardly crime".
The man answered the door to his house on Ashton Road in Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside, on Tuesday morning.
The gang covered the man's face and ransacked the house before escaping with cash.
The victim has been left very shaken but not physically harmed. Officers are asking witnesses to come forward.
Detective Chief Inspector Chris Sephton said: "This is a despicable and cowardly crime. People who prey on the elderly are unscrupulous and must be stopped."
