Transport Police issue appeal after wallet stolen on train

British Transport Police has appealed for the public's help in finding this woman folowing the theft of a wallet on board a train near Burnham-On-Sea.

They have released CCTV footage of the woman, who they think may be able to assist them with their enquiries.

It comes after a wallet was stolen from a man between Highbridge and Burnham railyway station and Bridgwater.

PC Clive Ellaway, investigating officer, said: "The victim had placed his wallet inside his coat pocket and then left the coat on his seat while he went to the toilet as the train was travelling between Highbridge and Burnham and Bridgwater stations."

"He later realised his wallet was missing and reported it to train staff who searched the train."

"Staff found the wallet on board and returned it to the passenger but a quantity of cash was missing from the wallet."

Anyone with information should contact the BTP on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 and quote incident reference B6, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
