A HANDBAG which was believed to have been stolen in an opportunistic burglary has been found.

A Flackwell Heath home owner reported the suspected burglary this morning after believing her bag was stolen whilst she was recycling.

However, it is believed the bag which contained a mobile phone as well as cash, cards and a driving licence, has since been found in the home.

Police were at the property for over two hours and searched the surrounding area and also questioned neighbours.
