POLICE are investigating a report of an intruder in a secure garden in the centre of Forres.

At around 3pm on Tuesday, May 12, a North Road resident discovered a man she estimates was around five feet five inches in height, aged between 45 and 55-years-old with dark hair heading towards the shed in her back garden.

She said: "When I saw him through the window, I just thought: what is he doing there? I opened the window and asked and he replied 'I'm looking for B&B miss, sorry'.

"I shut the window and by the time I got round to back of the house he was out the gate, still saying 'sorry miss'. His accent wasn't from round here."

A Police Scotland spokesperson confirmed they are investigating.

She said: "Officers in Forres received reports of a suspicious incident outwith a property on North Road, Forres around 5.10pm on Tuesday, 12 May, 2020. Enquiries to establish the full circumstances are ongoing."

The resident added: "I have a wall and six foot fence and gates around my house. Everyone should be careful and make sure all sheds and garages are locked."
