Police have appealed across Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire for help in finding the woman, who was captured on CCTV footage.

She is described as white, of slim build, possibly in her 50s to 60s, with below shoulder-length brown hair.

It relates to an incident where a woman went to one bank branch to request a new debit card and then went to another to request a new pin. Both were sent to the account holder's home address, without her knowledge, but appear to have been intercepted.

The new bank card and pin were then used at branches of the bank in Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket on the same day in October last year, with thousands of pounds being withdrawn on each occasion.
