    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.

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