The incident happened at 11.50am on November 23.

An elderly woman was in the booking hall when a man with a crutch walked in. He approached the woman and then stole her handbag when she was not looking.

Although the victim was not injured during the theft, she has been extremely shaken by the incident. The bag had sentimental value to her and the theft has left her feeling anxious when she leaves the house.

A British Transport Police spokesperson said: “We would like to speak with the man in the CCTV image as they believe he has important information which could help them investigate.

Anyone with any information can text police on 61016 or call 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 201 of 23/11/2017.
