The second happened at about 5.45pm in Pitfield Close, Fenstanton. A man told the victim, who is in her 80s, that he was from the water board and she needed to run her taps. Another man then entered the house, but left the area empty handed when the victim’s neighbours became suspicious.

Both men are described as white and being roughly in their 20s. One was slight build with dark hair and the other stocky with ginger hair. A blue BMW 1 Series was seen at both locations.
