Burglars who attempted to break into a Corby car showroom left empty-handed after triggering the building’s alarm.

The thieves tried to force open a window at Rockingham Cars, Cockerell Road, at about 4.15am this morning, but fled after the alarm sounded.

The attempted break-in is not believed to be related to two other burglaries in the town last night.

Witnesses, or anyone who knows anything about this incident, can call Northamptonshire Police on 101.

Alternatively, they can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
