A HAVE-A-GO burglar was disturbed during a Clacton break-in.

The man smashed a window in Boxted Avenue, shortly after 6.30pm on Monday, December 3.

But he was scared off after the homeowner returned, and escaped empty handed.

He is described as white, in his early 20s and was wearing white Adidas clothing.

Detectives are urging anyone with information to contact Clacton police on 101.
