  1. What is Harrogate coming to its getting really bad. I hope the family are not too badly injured and traumatised. Give them my regards and hope they recover soon 🙏 💜 x

  2. So sad is this incident but what is even more sadder is the fact that it is now an everyday occurrence. Don’t try to defend yourself because it is highly likely that YOU will be the felon not the scum that breaks into your house. What an atrocious society we live in.

  3. Really can’t believe it happening in our local community. I do hope You and your family recove and get all the help you need especially from the professionals. If you require our cleaning services please feel free to call me personally Jason 07956968782 we would not charge you at all. Best regards and hopefully the police catch these scum bags ASAP

  4. Omg so terrible how frightening like Julie green sed wats Harrogate coming to . People work hard for ther belongings for scumbags to do this hope the family get quick recovery so traumatising for children to witness it’s heartbreaking main thing you all are alive but oviously you all have been badly hurt and going to take time to recovery thinking of you all x

  5. All I’ll say is be careful what you flash around. The more money you have on display, the more of a target you will be. There’s a good chance there villans we’re from outside of the area but they were well informed about the amount of valuable goods that were available.
