CCTV of station luggage 'thief'

A man has been caught on CCTV rifling through an elderly couple's luggage and apparently stealing them, just before giving the unwitting victims a hand to get their bags onto a train.

Police released footage of the man, including him trying on a jacket from the bags, at Troedyrhiw station in Merthyr Tydfil.

The 73-year-old victim had left the bags at the shelter on the platform and walked to the street to wait for his wife before they left for a holiday.

A camera, a jacket and a bag containing medication for the holiday were taken.

The incident happened on 11 July and British Transport Police have urged anyone with information to contact them.
