PATROLS were stepped up across Breightmet and Harwood overnight following a burglary.

Shortly after 3.15am today, officers attempted to stop a silver Honda Civic that was bearing registration plates for an Audi A3.

However, the vehicle made off at high speed in Newby Road towards Breightmet.

Yesterday police appealed for information after a house was broken into and a vehicle was stolen from Lea Gate in Harwood.

Officers from Bolton North are looking for a grey Mini Cooper with registration PL17 BSO.

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
