A woman from the household, who wished to be unnamed, said that her partner had to escort the man from the house.

She added: "I'm just lucky I had my partner here to remove him, he has been trained as a close protection operative so was able to remove him, other people might not be so lucky or have somebody there who could remove him, he's quite a big guy and wasn't listening when told to leave."

The woman said she had heard of similar incidents in the area and asked people to keep their doors locked and be wary of strangers.

Police urge the public to call 101 if they have any concerns.
