Bash a Burglar?

I note that Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Philip (Harry) Seccombe has admitted that the 101 service is a load of crap, (The Stratford upon Avon Herald 21st March & I paraphrase), which must beg the question, ‘this being so, are we within our rights to bash a burglar and take the law into our own hands’?

Speaking for myself, if I find,  for instance, a nere-do-well on my property without an invite, AND the designated service (i.e. The police) are unable to attend, I would feel perfectly justified, in an effort to protect my innocent family, in causing the footpad great pain using a blunt instrument of my own choosing.

What view would the Law take?
