It appears to have been a case of mistaken identity but the men still searched the house, including a room where young children were sleeping, before leaving empty-handed and running off in the direction of Quince Tree Close.”

The man in the e-fit is describes as around 5ft 6in tall, of slim build, in his 20s and had short black afro style hair and was wearing a padded coat.

The other three men were of a similar height and build, one was black and two were white.
