CCTV images of a group of people wanted in relation to two purse thefts have been released by police.

The images are of three men and a woman.

In the first incident, in Gravesend, on March 31, an elderly lady had her purse and £600 just withdrawn from Lloyds Bank snatched from her bag.

The second was in Chatham town centre on April 4, when again an elderly woman was targeted and her purse taken from her bag.

Detectives believe the people captured in these CCTV images may have vital information which will help them with their inquiries.
