A grandmother in Stoke-on-Trent successfully stopped a thief at her local supermarket by hitting him with her handbag.
I knew my handbag was heavy, as it always is because I've always got my purse, keys and pills in there. So I just swung it at him. Luckily it hit him on the right shoulder and I put my right hand up to try and stop him but he barged into me. It all happened so fast but it made me laugh when he tried running away and fell over me. He fell flat on his face and that's when he was arrested.
