A female pick pocket has been caught on camera stealing from two Thai tourists in London.
Nina Spencer, 51, and Toi McGurran, 51, were walking towards the Palace Theatre in London’s West End while making a video to share to their friends.
But after they crossed the road Toi realised that her purse containing £400 in cash and credit cards were missing from her handbag.
It wasn’t until the Nina and Toi watched the video back that they realised what had happened.
The footage shows three women walking closely behind Nina and Toi.
One woman appears to shield the other’s hand as she reaches into the bag and grabs the purse.
The purse is then handed to another woman before all three walk off quickly in the same direction.
Nina reported the theft to the police but they haven’t yet been able to return the purse.
Speaking to The Sun, Nina said: ‘We reported this to the police straight away. They asked me for the location where it happened and we sent them the video of it.
“We don’t think it’s possible to have the money back now. But we just want to be helpful and let the police be aware of things going on in the city.”
Nina lives in the UK with her British husband. Toi was recently visiting Nina on holiday from Thailand and the pair decided to visit London.
Nina said the incident ruined their trip and left them disappointed with their experience of London.
”It’s sad that this had to spoil our trip. I hope the police can catch them so that it doesn’t happen to other people”, she said.
