Do you recognise this car? Officers have released images after an 89-year-old woman was burgled in her home in Selston.

We 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

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. We know the images are not very clear but it might just jog someone's memory.
