One attacker is described as 5ft 7ins tall with short brown hair and wearing a pink jumper.

The second is around 5ft 8ins tall with short brown hair and was wearing a black bomber jacket with jeans. Both are said to be of Indian appearance.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
