South Yorkshire Police said the crooks were disturbed at around 3am and ran off - dropping power tools and other items they had stolen.

A force spokesman said: "If you have a shed, ensure you have a good strong padlock or other security measures to prevent easy access.

"Do not store any items of a high value. If you see or hear anyone acting suspiciously call the police on 999."
