Police have praised a Sheffield man who chased two burglars down his street and recovered stolen property they dropped.

Photographer Gordie Cavill, aged 44, of Fulton Road, Walkley, was woken after his wife who heard a noise in the early hours of Monday.

When he looked outside he saw two men putting a television into his wheelie bin.

He followed them and found the TV, which had been stolen from a nearby house.

Inspector Darren Starkey, of South Yorkshire Police, said: “ “Without Mr Cavill, the offenders would have probably escaped and evidence could have been lost. We wish to thank Mr Cavill.”
