Hundreds of purse chains and bells were handed out to shoppers in Belper as part of a campaign to help prevent purse thefts.

Belper Police were at the Morrisons store on June 6.

PC Dave Baggott said: “During the past two weeks we have had four reports of purses that have been stolen from handbags in Belper and we are grateful to Morrisons for giving us the opportunity to hold the event.”
