This was at 7am.

She added: “It’s the clothes, not the �10 that I’m cross about.
“They can keep the money; I’d just like my clothes back.”
Daughter Pam Brannen, of St Albans, said: “I just don’t understand it, why would anyone want to steal a 90-year-old lady’s washing?
“We would just love to find out what happened to it, it’s just so strange.
“I don’t expect we will ever see it again, but if someone does have a guilty conscience it would be nice if they could return it.”
