Bulwell police are urging shoppers to be vigilant after a series of purse thefts in the town centre.

PCSO Laura Sims said: “Please be aware that there have been some purse thefts during the month of July.

“These thefts have been occurring because purses are being left on top of trolleys, and in open handbags where the offenders can see directly into your bag.”

Shoppers are advised to be aware of their surroundings, keep valuables out of view and ensure that handbags are closed, zipped up and buckled.
