A 90-year-old woman from Essex has been left “very distressed” after her handbag containing £1,000 and an item of “hugely important” sentimental value was stolen.
The victim had left her bag on the hook of a cubicle door in the public toilets on Rosemary Road, Clacton, when the theft took place at around 12 noon on Monday, October 27.
The black leather handbag contained £1,000 in cash and the victim’s RAF service card from the Second World War, which is said to have been of great sentimental value.
Investigating officer Pc Chris Allwood said: “This crime has left the elderly victim very distressed.
“Not only has she lost a large sum of money but the RAF service card, which she’s had for 65 years, was hugely important to her.”
