Two men burst into a home wielding a firearm and demanding cash yesterday evening, but fled the scene empty-handed on a maroon motorbike.

The home invasion took place at 5.15pm on Orchard Grove in Pembroke and involved two men wearing dark helmets and clothing. One suspect is described as 5ft 6 ins, while the other was 5ft 10 ins.
