Shoppers are being warned not to fall victim to pick-pockets in Ely.

Police say they had two reports from people who had fallen victim to ‘purse dippers’ in the city yesterday (June 11).

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said: “We are doing all we can to identify the offenders and deter further offences.

“If you are out shopping in the near future, please make sure you are securing your purse in your bag and keep a watch out for anyone who gets a bit too close to you.

“If you notice someone trying your handbag then call us immediately on 999, if you notice a while after then call us on 101.”
