A pair of con men tricked their way into the home of a 99-year-old woman in an attempted burglary in Castleford.

One of the men told the pensioner they were looking for a tennis ball while the other rummaged through the woman’s Front Street home on Saturday, July 25.

The suspects were then disturbed by a neighbour before leaving.

Anyone with any information should contact Wakefield CID on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
