Police want to speak to two women about the theft of a four figure sum from an elderly woman.

The money was in an envelope stolen from the 82-year-old victim's walker on September 2 in Tesco in Market Place, Braintree.

She was distracted by a woman who began asking her questions and later realised it had been taken.

Anyone who recognises the women pictured is asked to call 101 quoting reference 42/139286/20 or report online at essex.police.uk
