On February 28 between 2.15pm and 2.30pm, a woman had her Osprey handbag snatched from her car, which contained an iPhone 5S, Osprey purse, Radley purse, cash and bank cards.

She had parked in Moors Walk and left it on the passenger seat while loading up her shopping. When she returned from putting the trolley back, she realised the bag had been taken. She then noticed a large black Mercedes parked next to her quickly drive off.
