Police have said the suspects arrived in a vehicle and parked in the layby on Oxford Road, facing the direction of Banbury.

It is believed that four people got out of the vehicle and then approached the property, before smashing their way into the house by forcing the rear door.

During the burglary, the thieves stole a small amount of tobacco and cigarettes.

However, Thames Valley Police think that the property was deliberately targeted for a high value vehicle parked on the driveway.

A Thames Valley Police spokesperson said: “If you were passing the area between these times and recall any suspicious activity or vehicles parked in the layby, or have any dash-cam footage, please phone 101 quoting reference number 43220247396.”
