A Vigo resident found a burglar fast asleep on her living room sofa after she returned home from a night out.

The property owner entered her house with a couple of friends and spotted the 35-year-old intruder grabbing forty winks.

The shocked resident discovered that the man had smashed a window to gain access to her home.

The only stolen item was a TV set.
