Police have released CCTV images of two people they want to trace in connection with a robbery on a city centre street.

An Apple iPhone was snatched from a woman who was standing at a bus stop in Victoria Street, Derby.

The 17-year-old victim was pushed back by the thief, who stole the phone and ran off towards Colyear Street.

The victim also spotted a second man nearby, who followed the first one.
