An elderly couple have been robbed at knifepoint in an "alarming and nasty attack" in their home, police said.
Police said two offenders climbed through a kitchen window at the couple's home in Blackpool Road, Bispham, on Wednesday evening.
The men took knives from a kitchen drawer and threw one of the occupants, a man in his mid-80s, to the floor before demanding money.
They then escaped with £1,500 and a watch, leaving the victims "shaken".
