Four 10-week-old French bulldog puppies have been stolen after their owner was threatened by masked men.

Police said two men forced their way into a home in Freeland Road, Clacton, Essex, just before midnight on Monday.

One person was threatened with a hammer before the thieves left via neighbouring gardens.

Officers are appealing for anyone who saw anything suspicious, or who has seen bulldog puppies for sale, to get in touch.
