    Intruders break into wrong house, apologise

    Armed intruders broke into a family's house in Britain, only to apologise and leave again, having realised they intended to beat someone up next door instead.

    A woman was upstairs with her children in Swinton, Yorkshire, northern England, when two men armed with a knife and a plank of wood broke in through a back door.

    "The intruders made their way upstairs where the occupant was with her two children," a South Yorkshire police spokesman said.

    "It became obvious the intruders had got the wrong address and they left, apologising. No threats were made, although the woman was in a distressed state."

    The men then forced their way into a house next door and beat up a young man - presumed to be their intended victim - although he was not seriously hurt, the spokesman added.

    I was just thinking that what is missing from most common criminals is politeness and responsibility.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.

    It just goes to show that good manners can be appropriate in every situation.
