A woman who was robbed in Upminster has spoken out about her experience in the hope that it may prevent future incidents.
Angela Bell was running the Beavers Club on October 5 with another lady — who has chosen to remain anonymous — at the Trinity URC Church in Station Road.
She said: “Because of coronavirus, parents are not allowed to come into the church to collect their children and so we have been taking them to the foyer.

“He was seen around the church at 6.50pm; our purses were stolen just after 7pm.”
Inside Angela’s purse was a picture of her late grandad which she would like to see returned.
She hopes speaking out will ensure the public remain vigilant around the church.
No arrests have been made. Anyone with information is urged to contact the police, quoting reference 5415 010/20.
