A PENSIONER was pushed to the floor of his home as he tried to stop a pair of robbers.
The man, who is in his 70s, was with his wife at the time of the offence, which took place yesterday.
Shortly after 5pm the couple heard a knock at the door of their static caravan, at Navigation Home Park, London Road, Derby.
The husband opened the door to two men, who asked if they could come in and check the pipes.

When the man refused to let them in, they pushed past him and searched the caravan.
They took cash before leaving, making their way through gardens and out on to Avon Street.
Police say the couple were unhurt, but shaken, by the robbery.
Both robbers were white and around 5ft 10ins tall.
One was in his late 20s or early 30s and wore a beige coloured jumper.
The other man was in his mid to late 20s, of stocky build and was wearing a grey hooded top.
Anyone with information should call 101.
