A Nottingham burglary suspect was tracked down close to the scene after police responded quickly to reports of a break-in.

Officers were called to Blake Close, St Ann’s, Nottingham, around 4.15pm yesterday (1 May) after a woman reported someone was trying to break into her home.

After gaining a description of the intruder from the victim, response teams began a search of the neighbourhood.

They spotted a man in nearby Carlton Road and he ran when officers approached him.

He was pursued over garden walls and detained. Officers found a set of garden pliers nearby and a bag which was full of suspected stolen items.

“I’m also pleased we have a suspect in custody, but our investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with any information, or relevant doorbell, dashcam or CCTV footage, should get in touch with us.”
