Man pistol-whipped during burglary in Carshalton

Police are hunting two men who broke into a house in Carshalton and attacked the couple who lived there this morning. The husband was hit with a handgun and cut on the hand with a knife when he attempted to struggle with the burglars. The couple were then tied up and the two men stole some cash and keys before leaving.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sutton Police station on 0208 649 0735 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

This was a terrifying burglary committed by two men who used a high level violence against the victims. I would urge anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area or has information on what happened to come forward as soon as possible.

– Detective Sergeant Julian Phillips, Sutton CID

A flock of sheep appear to have been left with no permanent side effects despite eating bags of cannabis which had been dumped at their farm in Surrey. The seven bags were left at Fanny's Farm in Merstham and police estimate the cannabis had a street value of £4,000.

The farm manager told the Daily Mirror that she had no idea who had dumped the bags there. Anyone with information about the bags is asked to contact Surrey Police.
