Police have released CCTV photos of a woman they want to speak to in relation to the theft of an 83-year-old woman’s bag.

The purse was stolen in Aldi on Plumstead Road on Tuesday, September 17, after the woman accidently left her handbag in the trolley.

The incident happened the day after her birthday, and the purse contained gift and pension money, as well as photos of her dead husband.

The woman's granddaughter, Cherie Howard, said the family did text her grandmother's mobile phone, asking for the sentimental items to be returned, but did not receive a reply.
