A GANG burst into a family’s living room demanding cannabis in a bungled robbery.

At least six men barged into the house in Griffin Street, Blackburn in what is believed to be a case of mistaken identify.

One of them grabbed a chain around owner Alan Simpson’s neck before grabbing him by the throat while his wife Michelle looked on in horror.

The men fled after being scared off by the couple’s teenage daughter Laura, who ran down the stairs screaming at the gang to leave her dad alone.

The family yesterday spoke of their terror, and said they were scared to remain in their Mill Hill home of 20 years.

Doctor’s receptionist Michelle, 46, said: “I’m on pins everytime the door goes. It was terrifying, I wouldn’t wish this on anybody. I’m scared to be here on my own.”

Husband Alan, who works at Cavalier Carpets in nearby Dixon Street, said he has had panic attacks since the incident.

The 52-year-old said: “I was scared to death. I was shaking with shock, telling them they had the wrong house.

“We’ve both been signed off work, and I’m on medication for anxiety and stress. We can’t afford to move.”

The pair were at home with daughters Laura, 17, and Jordan 14, as well as Laura’s boyfriend Jordan, 17, at the time of the attack.

Michelle, who was working on her laptop, said: “I heard the door open and looked up to see all these men. Three went straight to the doors inbetween two rooms, and three stayed next to the front door, which they closed behind them.

“I pushed my laptop away and grabbed the phone to call police, but one of them grabbed it off me. He said he was going to take my laptop but I said, ‘no, you are not’.”

Alan, alerted by his wife’s screaming and shouting, opened the sliding doors separating the two rooms, but was attacked by the men, who broke the silver chain around his neck.

He said: “One had my arm and the other had his hand around my throat.

“They were shouting, ‘where’s the weed?’. None of us even smoke. I was shouting, ‘you have the wrong house’. I was shaking like a leaf.”

The men also punched Jordan and took his phone, before bolting when Laura, who has just finished her studies at college, ran downstairs to protect her dad after hearing the commotion.

Michelle added: “She screamed, ‘what do you think you are doing?’ and stood beside her dad.

“They must have realised they were in the wrong house because they ran down the street.

“You don’t expect somebody to open your door and six men to barge in. The front room was just full of men.

“It was over so quickly. Five minutes and it was over with. I keep thinking, ‘what would have happened if Laura had not come down the stairs.”

Alan gave chase, but couldn’t catch up with the men, who ran in the direction of Portland Street. They took two mobile phones, and a cordless house phone in the incident, which happened at around 7.10pm on Sunday.

The men were described as being aged between 30 and 40, speaking with local accents, and were spotted hanging around outside before the attack.

One was white, in his late 30s or 40s, of a stocky, muscular built and was wearing a black, waist length jacket.

A second was white, wearing a grey hoody, and third was white, in his mid to late 40s and wearing oval glasses.

DC Lyndsey Lord said: “We are investigating this could be a case of mistaken identity. Nevertheless, this family were completely terrified and are still affected by what happened.”

The sooner these thugs are brought to justice and jailed THE BETTER. No doubt some dogooder will bleat about their rights and our pants justice system will slap em on the wrists or give em useless community service or use restorative justice so they make up with the victims. I wouldn't accept an apology from them or let them make up;rehabilitation benefit or not-point stands, they shouldn't have done it!

Drugs are a cancer in our society and any crime involving drugs should be dealt with using the utmost severity.
Personally, I am in favour of the restoration of the death penalty for drug dealers. I know the bleeding-heart liberal-left do-gooders will throw up their hands in horror at this idea ( dropping their copy of the Guardian in the process ) but drug dealers are ruthless and ruthless tactics are needed to fight them.
You can't deal drugs from a wooden box.
Likewise, yobs who commit crimes to obtain drugs need vicious punishments - I would sentence the vermin in this crime to 10yrs on a chain gang, no privileges, 7 days a week on the Yorkshire Dales digging ditches in all weathers, and bring school kids to see them as a warning about what will happen to anyone who gets involved with drugs.
And to any Guardianistas who object to this idea - talk to Alan Rusbridger, 'cos I ain't listening !!

Crikey!
This means that there is a factory making weed on that street.
Oh wait!
It's near Cavalier Carpets, who have grass tufting machines...
An easy mistake to make.

Why would you think that the boyfriend, Jordan, had anything whatsoever to do with this? What an idiotic assumption to make, based upon nothing more than pure supposition.
This is Blackburn, where a shoplifter, dressed in a Santa suit, gets caught shoplifting, in Sainsbury's, in September...and you want all the Santa's rounded up, for an ID parade?
I am the village idiot, but YOU, are giving me some cause for concern about my job!

Actually I think Copperhead has a valid point. Why do we not have chain gangs in this country, get the thugs, burglars, junkies, drug dealers, rapists, murderers, kiddie fiddlers and all the rest of the scum some fresh air and at the same time they can be a help to society, and they can wear those nice bright orange overalls too. Job done!

There seems to be quite a few things LT cannot, or will not, print as we know. Comments on articles covering contentious issues (mostly in connection with other minority ethnic groups) which are allowed in the main daily newspapers but not by the LT. The recent headline case of `Fury at Asians only advert in Nelson house window' (no crime committed, we are conveniently told by our local police spokesman) being one. So much fury in fact that we cannot discuss it within these pages.
Another seems to be in connection with `Nelson Muslim school ranked outstanding' which an email this morning tells me there are 12 comments on that by 11.0 am which I would like to have read but which now seem to have disappeared - unless my computer is playing up. Why is that? If so, this is pathetic, it is censorship. LT's comment policy leaves much to be desired in my opinion. It make me wonder who is running this newspaper.
I like today's vote on whether forced conscription should be brought back. Do we really think that might happen and have a large proportion of our East Lancashire population sign up to go and fight the West's illegal and unnecessary wars in (mostly) Muslim countries? That would really be a litmus test of how `British' some of our citizens are. Germans and Italians here were locked up during WW2 in case they aided the enemy.
I agree 100%, I was also disappointed to see LET censor the Outstanding School article !

"An estimated 500 British Muslims are said to have flown to Syria to fight with the ultra-violent Islamic extremists..."

With regards the LT's over the top censorship I agree. I also find it the more frustrating that even online national newspapers like the Daily Mail's "Mail Online" print the same story and allow it's readers the opportunity to comment fully on lots of articles which the Lancashire Telegraph deny their reader's any comment on whatsoever. The only time the LT should deny comment is when the story is subject to the rules of "sub judice". However, we are often denied a right to comment, even after the perpetrators have been tried, fund guilty and then sentenced. It is about time that the LT, if it is going to have a comment/right to reply section either published all or scrapped the option to comment completely. There should also be a a full terms and conditions section which lists what the responsibilities of the contributor are and also what the consequences of posting libelous or defamatory statements are to those who post malicious statements.

Why are you bringing muslims into this comment area. I read this story and as I was making my way down to the comments, i thought to myself, surely even the die hard racists can't make any comments on ethnic minorities or muslims on this. But guess what, I was wrong - there are some incredibly sad people who cannot help themselves!!! Look yourself in the mirror mate - you are a sad troublemaker, hellbent on using any forum to divide communities.

I can see why the LT would not allow comments on certain stories, because you and you racist friends have a bigotfest - which is usually disproportionate to the story being reported - and is usually very tunnel visioned as well.

Well, you (Editor-in-Chief by any chance?) have your views as I have mine. Whilst you might be happy to see this this country slowly slide into an Islamic State and become Balkanised by having the indigenous British flee our major cities as they are replaced by immigrants of other ethnicities in an act of genocide, I and many others are not going to stand by and be intimidated into saying and doing nothing. People are slowly waking up to the horrors to come. Luckily, we have the internet and alternative media.

Well done LT - lets not give these thugs a platform to ply their filth!![/p][/quote]Well, you (Editor-in-Chief by any chance?) have your views as I have mine. Whilst you might be happy to see this this country slowly slide into an Islamic State and become Balkanised by having the indigenous British flee our major cities as they are replaced by immigrants of other ethnicities in an act of genocide, I and many others are not going to stand by and be intimidated into saying and doing nothing. People are slowly waking up to the horrors to come. Luckily, we have the internet and alternative media. M Foster

Following on from my comment above about the current LT online vote for forced conscription to our armed forces I found this -
From today's Daily Mail (Britons?) -

Britons are heading to Iraq to join ISIS militants in their HUNDREDS amid fears they could bring terror to the UK'
"An estimated 500 British Muslims are said to have flown to Syria to fight with the ultra-violent Islamic extremists..."
Learning how to behead, crucify and execute around 1600 captured opposition forces to date, etc, in the name of the Religion of Peace, eh?
Good skills there to be utilised back in Blighty in due course? They should not be allowed back!
Why are you bringing muslims into this comment area. I read this story and as I was making my way down to the comments, i thought to myself, surely even the die hard racists can't make any comments on ethnic minorities or muslims on this. But guess what, I was wrong - there are some incredibly sad people who cannot help themselves!!! Look yourself in the mirror mate - you are a sad troublemaker, hellbent on using any forum to divide communities.

Well done LT - lets not give these thugs a platform to ply their filth!!
Well said, this story has absolutely no thing to do with religion. I personally think, the racist inbred's had a disappointing turn out on Sat's match, and now they are taking out their frustration via LT site. Just shows these indigenous people; what they really like.

The reason half the world speaks English is because we invaded them and forced religion on them.

I see a country as a pizza, yeah just cheese is ok but lets put loads of toppings on and make things interesting. As far as I'm concerned anybody willing to try is welcome here, anybody not willing to try (from any nationality even English) is welcome to get a ticket out.

Drugs are a cancer in our society and any crime involving drugs should be dealt with using the utmost severity.
Personally, I am in favour of the restoration of the death penalty for drug dealers. I know the bleeding-heart liberal-left do-gooders will throw up their hands in horror at this idea ( dropping their copy of the Guardian in the process ) but drug dealers are ruthless and ruthless tactics are needed to fight them.
You can't deal drugs from a wooden box.
Likewise, yobs who commit crimes to obtain drugs need vicious punishments - I would sentence the vermin in this crime to 10yrs on a chain gang, no privileges, 7 days a week on the Yorkshire Dales digging ditches in all weathers, and bring school kids to see them as a warning about what will happen to anyone who gets involved with drugs.
And to any Guardianistas who object to this idea - talk to Alan Rusbridger, 'cos I ain't listening !!
I wholly agree with everything you say and as for andy1 wanting drugs legalised on the back of this he's an utter drugs legislation jerk!!! You think legalising drugs will stop all this andy1? What an idiot you are. I agree with Govts tough heavy handed stance on refusing to legalise drugs;it's just a horrible cancerous scum on our society that would cause more problems than it solves and by legalising them would quadruple the misery that dealers and users taking smoking and injecting this dirty filthy rubbish brings. I agree about using the death sentences for drugs offences as they do in a handful of countries which is the immediate and ultimate penalty for this midemeanourous crime.
