Burglars are targeting the homes of Muslims in Lancashire who are visiting mosques during Ramadan.

Homes in Brierfield have been burgled by the men, who are believed to be Asian, during special prayer times.

CCTV images have been issued of two men police want to speak to in connection with the burglaries.

An awareness campaign has been launched at mosques by officers, encouraging worshippers to keep windows and doors shut and locked when they leave home.
