Pensioner’s washing stolen from outside Potters Bar home

A PENSIONER is angry after thieves stole her clothes washing from the doorstep of her Potters Bar home.

On Thursday, May 13 Mary Worrall, of Ormesby Drive, left her checked plastic laundry bag, with �10, clothes, bedding and towels inside, to be picked up by her friend to take to the launderette.

This was at 7am.

By 7.30am when her friend arrived, the laundry was gone.

Mary, 90, told the Potters Bar Edition: “I’ve lost my favourite top, my favourite towels and bed sheets, and I still keep remembering other things that were in there.

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.”

Anyone with information should call police on 0845 33 00 222.
