The suspects fled but managed to take a number of items, including cash and jewellery in the raid.

They were seen driving off from the area in a red Ford Fiesta vehicle.

Constable Shaun Conway from West Lothian’s Community Investigation Unit said: “This was a frightening experience for the homeowners who returned to the property to find three intruders inside.

“I would appeal to anyone who saw any suspicious behaviour, or who witnessed the red vehicle in the area on Wednesday evening, to come forward and contact officers.

“Equally anyone with information that can help trace those responsible is asked to get in touch.”

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 4121 of 9 May, or make an anonymous report to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
