Police warning about crying woman

Police in Northampton have warned people to be on their guard if a woman with children turns up on their doorstep crying hysterically.

Householders in the Duston area have already handed over money to her when she claims there has been a family emergency and that she needs to get a train to London.

PC Laura Mannion, of Northampton police, said: "The victims are usually vulnerable and elderly and this woman has not only called at residential addresses in Duston but also businesses and pubs in the town centre."
