Two children were left badly shaken after three men armed with shovels burgled a house in north Belfast.

The burglary happened in the St Vincent Street area of the city shortly before 2.50am on Saturday.

Police said it was reported that three men entered a house in the area armed with shovels and rummaged through the property.

PSNI Detective Constable Watts said: “Nothing was taken and, thankfully, no one was physically injured.  However, this was a terrifying ordeal for the two adults and two children who were in the house at the time and who have been left badly shaken.
