A BRAZEN gang of men broke into and ransacked a home, making off with the takings.

A gang of four men smashed a window and climbed into someone's home in Breightmet, stealing property from the house in the quiet, residential area.

The house was found burgled in the middle of the day, with Greater Manchester Police being called to Dorchester Avenue just after midday on Tuesday.

The thugs were wearing all black and had gloves on, police confirmed in a post on Facebook. They ran away after stealing a number of items in the direction of Winchester Way.

Police from the Bolton North division are now appealing for information about the incident.
