Warning on purses

Have your say

Police in Buxton have been reminding elderly shoppers to keep their purses safe after two thefts.

Officers are advising shoppers to make sure they never leave handbags unattended in shopping trolleys, even for just a moment.

Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team have been speaking to older residents and have given out and fitted 100 purse chains and offered advice on how they can reduce the chances of having their purses stolen while out shopping.
