A WOMAN IN her 20s was tied up and locked in a bathroom by masked men during an aggravated burglary today.

The PSNI said that detectives are appealing for information following the incident in the Craigmore Road area of Garvagh.

It was reported that three masked men carrying crowbars forced their way into a house shortly before 6am.
