CCTV images have been released of two men after a woman in her 80s had money stolen from her bank account.

The theft happened at Lloyds Bank in Bancroft, Hitchin, on October 22, when the pensioner was withdrawing money from a cash machine.

While using the machine inside the bank, she became aware of people waiting behind her and hurried to finish. As a result she walked away from the machine and accidentally left her card behind.

Two men then took the card and went outside the bank and used another ATM to withdraw cash. They then left the area in an unknown direction.

Police would like to speak with the men pictured in connection with the theft.
