The elderly woman withdrew £40 from the cash machine inside Poundland, in Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre, on Tuesday, July 2, but left without removing her money.

A short time later it is reported that two women, who police say are possibly in their teens, took the money from the machine before leaving the centre.
