I met him for a drink in a pub in Stockwell, as we are getting the drinks my phone bleeps. We have this camera in my baby Sams bedroom.

It said “motion in the room”, but normally I sort of ignore it, as we are always in and its only us. To my horror, someone was in the house.

Within a minute I had phoned 999, and told them a burglary was in progress and they took the details.

Mr Wallaces wife and son had left for Florida that morning for a few days, and the house was empty at the time of the offence.

I reckon its over a year since we have both been out at 7.45pm, unless we have been on holiday.

Its really, really unusual that we would ever ever be out, Mr Wallace said.

I saw this person crawling into the room. When you first see it it doesnt make sense. For a few seconds you just dont understand what you are looking at, its your house and there is a women crawling in to the room.
