Police are appealing for information after a 75-year-old woman was knocked to the ground by a suspected shoplifter in Oldham.

Inspector Karen Taylor, from GMP’s Oldham District, said: “This is an awful incident which has resulted in an elderly lady suffering a broken wrist. Thankfully she is recovering well at home but she is understandably shaken and sore after her ordeal.

“Images of the moment when she was knocked to the ground have been caught on dash-cam and shared on social media. Members of the public will be understandably shocked by this and we would like to speak to the man who features in that footage in connection with this.”
