Brave Michelle Miller revealed she ‘disturbed five blokes’ in her garden last night who appeared to be planning a burglary on her house in Havant Road, Farlington.

But rather than hide or call police, the have-a-go-hero confronted the males who she chased round the front of the house before one of the gang lashed out with a crowbar – smashing the front door.

The group did not gain entry to the house before scuttling off empty-handed.
