Do you recognise any of these people, who police say were caught 'tampering' with garages?

Mark Frow published these stills which he claims show an attempted break-in at garages in Wadsley Park Village, Middlewood.

Although nothing was stolen on this occasion, he says it was the third time in seven weeks burglars looking for tools have targeted vans and garages on Northwood Drive.

There have reportedly been a number of break-ins and attempted break-ins in the area
