British Transport Police officers are appealing for the public’s help after the theft of a handbag and a mobile phone from two women on board a train as it arrived at Wokingham railway station.
Detectives are today in a position to release a series of CCTV images of two men they believe will be able to help them with their investigation into the thefts which took place at about 8.40pm on Monday, 15 September.
