Police are appealing for information following a robbery in Somersham late last night (26 March).

Four men forced their way into a home in Bishops Yard at about 11pm before assaulting two men and taking a laptop, two mobile phones, bank cards and a grey BMW 320.

The car was found abandoned and burnt out on the outskirts of Soham at just before 6am this morning (27 March).

Det Sgt Graham Newton, who is investigating, said he believed this was an isolated incident.

He said: “This was a terrifying experience for the victims and we are keen to hear from anyone with information or who may have seen something suspicious. We are particularly interested to hear if anyone saw the grey BMW in the early hours of this morning.”
