Two men have been arrested on suspicion of robbery after a 73-year-old woman was pushed over and had her trolley stolen in Clacton.
The men, aged 51 and 52, from Clacton, were arrested on Saturday and have been released on bail until Friday, December 14, pending further enquiries.
The alleged incident took place in West Avenue in the town around 5pm on Sunday, November 18.
Clacton’s covered market came together in support of the woman after hearing about the incident and arranged a collection.
The market managed to raise enough money to buy the woman a brand new tartan trolley - helping to give her back her independence.
