A woman in her 70s was grabbed round the neck by a would-be robber on the doorstep of her home.

Surrey Police said two men arrived at the property on Kingston Road in Epsom and demanded money.

The thieves, described as white and in their early 20s and with brown hair, fled empty-handed when they saw another resident.

Police said the victim's ordeal on Friday was "truly frightening". Officers are appealing for witnesses.
