Armed raiders force way into Westcott house

Three men broke into a house armed with a knife and possibly a gun, police have said.

The trio forced their way into the home on Springfield Road in Westcott, near Dorking, before threatening the occupants on Tuesday night.

The intruders, who were dressed in black with scarves over their faces, left with a handbag and watch.

Officers believe the raiders and victims know each other. The force is appealing for witnesses.
