Witness appeal as man is robbed of £1000

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a man was robbed in the street.

The offence took place at 8.40pm on Tuesday, December 6 on Ullswater Avenue, on Morecambe’s Branksome estate, when the 53-year-old victim was attacked as he returned back to his car after collecting money as part of his business.

The robber rushed up behind him and grabbed hold of his bum bag, pulling it with force and shouting “give me your money”.
