Thieves stole a woman's bank card on a Norwich night out then withdrew a 'large amount' of cash from an ATM.

The victim was in the Bam Bam bar in Tombland during the evening of Thursday, April 9 when she believes her bank card was stolen.

At around 2am on Friday, April 10 a man was seen to withdraw a large amount of cash from an ATM machine outside the Royal Bank of Scotland in Queen Street, Norwich.

The man, who had used the victim's card, then walked off into London Street.

He was described as white, aged in his late teens to early 20s with fair hair and wearing a navy blue jacket with a hood.

He was with another white man and a woman of similar age, both with dark hair and wearing dark clothing.

The three are believed to have been seen walking from Tombland to Queen Street prior to the cash being withdrawn.
