Burglars who tried to break into a Northamptonshire golf club fled empty handed after setting off an alarm when they partially demolished a wall to get into the building.

Sometime between 8pm and 8.30pm on Tuesday February 18, a burglar entered the gamekeeper’s yard at Rushden Golf Club in Kimbolton Road, Chelveston.

Once on the premises, they smashed a window and drilled padlocks before using a pole to remove three rows of breeze blocks to get inside the building.

However, the building’s alarm was set off and the burglars fled empty-handed.

Witnesses to this incident, or anyone who has any information, can call Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
