Would-be burglars who disguised themselves in blue Covid face masks are being sought after by police.

Between 4pm and 5pm on Thursday, February 11, two men were seen on the roof of an annexe on the side of a property in Bromycroft Road, Britwell, Slough.

Police said the would-be burglars attempted to break in through the window but then climbed down and fled the scene.

They ran towards the direction of the Eyre Green flats.
