Three men who tied up and robbed an elderly couple in Co Wicklow last night are being sought by gardaí.

The gang broke into the couple's home at Briarwood, Vevay Road at around 8.15pm.

They tied up the 85-year-old man and the 83-year-old woman in a study and ransacked the house before leaving with a quantity of jewellery.

The woman managed to raise the alarm by breaking a window.

Gardaí say both have been traumatised by their ordeal.

They have appealed to anyone with information on the incident to contact them at Bray Garda Station.
