The family of a pensioner who was dragged to the ground when a mugger made off with her handbag have spoke out about the horror of her attack.

79-year-old Joy Morson has been left with a broken arm after she was targeted on her way home from Sunday lunch at a friend's house in Kettering.

Her granddaughter Brittany Morson says she feels angry about the attack that has caused her beloved grandmother so much pain and stress.

But she says she is grateful to the people that have been exceptionally kind in response to seeing the shocking CCTV footage of the attack.

Friends, neighbours and even celebrities have rallied round to send kind messages and donating to a fund that has already reached £2,000.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the attack.
