People living on a street where an elderly woman was attacked in her own home have spoken of their shock.
An 89-year-old woman is spending her second night in hospital after she was attacked by three masked men.
One of her neighbours said: "We obviously have to be more vigilant in the local community, particularly keeping our eyes and ears open, especially for elderly and vulnerable people.
"After dark this is when the cowards creep out."
Police have condemned the attack at Arrowhead Drive as despicable and urged the public to help find those responsible.
