Police want to speak to two men in connection with a purse theft in Furness Vale.

Between 12pm hours and 5pm on December 3, a purse was stolen from a desk in a factory office on Knowles Industrial Estate.

Two males were seen in the area acting suspiciously. One was an Asian looking male wearing a red coat, aged in his 40s. The other was a white male in his 20s wearing a dark coloured coat.

A police spokesman said: “Sneak in thefts of this nature are a common in factory buildings and small shops.
