Do you recognise the woman in the CCTV still? If so, you could be able to help our officers.

They have released the image of a person they would like to speak to in connection with theft, after a purse was stolen from an elderly woman in Glossop.

Sometime between 10.50am and 11am on Saturday, March 11, a 74-year-old woman visited the Co-op on Norfolk Street, Glossop, before leaving and walking across the car park of The Yard, down the footpath to Railway Street.

As she left the store, a woman with a child, followed the victim before sneaking up behind her and taking her purse from her handbag.

We have now released a CCTV still of a woman we would like to speak to in connection with the theft.
