AN elderly woman had her handbag snatched as she was on her way to church in Neath.

Police say the 68-year-old victim was walking along Westernmoor Road at around 10.30am on Sunday when a woman grabbed the bag.

She ran off towards Wellfield Avenue, past Gnoll School.

Although the bag was later recovered, a red leather purse containing cash and credit cards was missing.

A police spokesman said: "The incident left the victim very shaken but unhurt."

The female suspect was white, around 5ft 5in, of slim build and with a long face.

She had shoulder-length brown or blonde hair and was wearing dark clothing.

Anyone who can help is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
