Robbers took clothes from a woman in her 50s after attacking her, police have revealed.

The incident happened in the Lawrence Lane area, near the footbridge and the B&M store.

The woman is believed to have had her handbag and mobile phone stolen as well as items of clothing.

The incident happened on 9 September, although police have only just released details today.
