A woman was chased down her Sheffield driveway by masked men who stole her safe and jewellery worth several hundred pounds.

The 62-year-old was chased away by burglars, whose faces were covered with scarves, when she returned home on Wednesday evening.

The incident happened at a house on Handsworth Road, Darnall, just before 6.30pm, police said.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “There was shouting before the woman was chased down the driveway and the men escaped in a black 4x4 vehicle.”
