Shoppers are being urged to keep a close eye on their valuables following further reports of purse thefts in a town centre.

Earlier this month, Lowestoft police issued a warning to shoppers following reports of purse thefts in and around shops in London Road North, Lowestoft.

With witnesses sought, police are also urging shoppers to keep their purses and wallets safe while out and about.
