Burglars ran off empty-handed after setting off an alarm while attempting a break-in at a Northampton hair and beauty supplies store.

Detectives say offenders smashed the front window of wholesalers Aston & Fincher in Cartwright Road, Kingsthorpe Hollow, between 6pm and 7.45 last night (Thursday, January 23).

But a Northamptonshire Police spokesman said: "It is believed the activation of the burglar alarm may have disturbed the intruders and nothing was stolen."
