Three men who tried to break into a Kettering shop fled empty-handed after the alarm went off.

The men broke into the Co-op store in Hallwood Road some time between 2.15am and 2.35am this morning (Wednesday, March 4).

They forced their way into the building but fled when the building’s alarms activated.

One man wore a grey or light blue jacket with a dark hood and a thick blue line going up the arms and across his shoulders.

His face was covered with a black scarf and he wore blue jeans or tracksuit bottoms and white trainers.

A second man also wore jeans or tracksuit bottoms and white trainers.

All three of the men arrived in a white or silver car.
