Three men ransack woman's house
An elderly woman has been robbed of a purse and cash by three men who broke into her home claiming to be searching for a lost dog.

The burglars smashed a pane of glass in a garden door, before making the woman sit in a chair while they ransacked her home in West Sussex.

The incident took place in High Street, Cuckfield, on Monday afternoon.

The men ran off towards the town centre. They were all described as white and aged in their late teens.
