First published in News

A THIEF stole a purse from a pensioner’s home while she was in.

The crook gained entry to the house in High Road, Horndon-on-the-Hill, through the back door and took £30 from the purse.

When confronted by the 81-year-old woman, the crook ran out.

Laura Anderson, spokesperson for Essex Police, said: “This must have been a frightening ordeal for the victim who had to confront a stranger in her own home."

Anyone with information is asked to call Grays police station on 0300 333 4444.
