Officers are appealing for witnesses following an incident in Peterborough where an elderly lady had her handbag snatched.

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Constabulary said: “Thankfully the victim was not hurt during this incident, but she has been understandably shaken by the experience.

“We’re keen to speak to anyone who witnessed what happened, or may have seen the man in the areas near Lincoln Road and Rhubarb Bridge.”
