Watch out for pickpockets

PICKPOCKETS are continuing to strike in Todmorden town centre.

A woman had her purse stolen from her bag while shopping at Lidl supermarket, off Halifax Road, last Monday afternoon, February 21.

The woman said there was only £1 cash in her purse when it was stolen but it has caused her a lot of inconvenience.

“I’ve had to cancel all my cards,” she said. “It’s been awful because you are thinking all the time about what was in the purse. I was worrying all day.”

Police have warned people to be on their guard after several reports of pickpockets targeting customers in town centre shops.
