CCTV footage of Hull pensioner 89, attacked and robbed in home

A man attacking and robbing an 89-year-old pensioner in her Hull home has been caught on CCTV.

Alice Swale, who also suffers from dementia, was knocked to the floor as Dwayne Hollingworth, 27, tried to steal the rings from her fingers in what police has described as a "despicable" crime.

Hollingworth, 27, of Annandale Road, was jailed for nine-and-a-half years at Hull Crown Court after pleading guilty to one count of robbery and other offences including shoplifting and battery.
