A woman had £500 stolen from her bank account after she was distracted by thieves at a cash machine in Northampton.

Two men approached a woman who was using the Nat West cash machine in St James Road.

They distracted the woman, then removed her card, after observing her pin number being entered.

They later went on to withdraw £500 from another machine nearby.

Police have released CCTV of two men wearing jogging bottoms they would like to speak to in connection with the theft.

Anyone with information or who recognises the men, can contact Northamptonshire police on 101.

Alternatively, they can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
