A Gatley newsagents has been targeted yet again by burglars.
Would-be intruders tried to gain entry via a double glazed unit in the front door but were disturbed when residents above reacted to and alarm being activated.
It is the second incident in less than six months at the shop. In March ramraiders drove a car into the front of the Silverdale Road shop.
It came to rest completely inside the newsagents and thieves stole cigarettes worth between £500 to £1,000 before escaping in a second stolen car.
