Video. A 97-year-old has spoken from his hospital bed about the moment he was targeted by a thief who stole hundreds of pounds in cash.
The woman was caught on camera stealing the money just moments after Leslie Parsonage collected £600 in pension money and savings at the Fryern Arcade shopping precinct at Chandlers Ford.
Since the incident, the partially sighted pensioner has suffered a serious blood clot and says he is too afraid to go out. Andrew Pate reports.
