Like the would-be burglars who attacked the home of Andy and Tracey Ferrie in Leicestershire, a burglar came into my neighbour's home recently, while most normal people slept. Unlike the Ferrie family, my neighbour didn't have a shotgun. Instead, she bravely summoned up a scream which woke the household and caused the burglar to flee. Her children were traumatised by the experience.
