Cash stolen by drive clearers

POLICE are urging people to be aware after cash was stolen from an elderly woman by a man who offered to clear her drive of snow.

Two men called at the house in Banks Avenue in Kirkby at around 4pm on Saturday.

After clearing the drive, one of the men asked for payment. He then asked to use the toilet and for a drink of water. When the woman returned with the drink, the man left hurriedly.

She then noticed that a quantity of cash had been stolen from her purse.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who saw the men or who may also have received a visit from them.

The man who went into the house is described as white, slim, with dark hair and a moustache. He was wearing grey clothing.

The second man was also white, of medium build, around 5ft 9ins tall, with short mousy-coloured hair and aged about 20-23 years old. He also wore grey.

A white pick-up, possibly a Nissan Navarro style vehicle, was seen nearby and police believe this may also be linked to the men.

Anyone with any information should call Nottinghamshire Police on 101.
