A fourteen year old boy has been arrested in connection with a mugging of a 96 year old woman in Wadebridge, Cornwall. Zoe Sheppard had her handbag snatched as she walked home earlier this month. Police say the boy is from Bodmin. He has been released on bail while more inquiries are made.
Police are concerned for the safety of 76 year old Margaret Street, reported missing from her home in Torquay. Her disappearance is said to be "high risk" because of medical conditions. The police helicopter and coastguard are helping in the search. She is believed to be in the Cockington area.
