A POCK-FACED woman is being sought by police after a purse was stolen from a primary school in Greenhithe.

The woman was seen wandering round Knockhall County Primary School, in Eynsford Road, by the caretaker and claimed to be looking around the school because she wanted to send her children there. She ran out of the front door to a parked H-reg red Rover Metro reported stolen from Bromley on June 5.

Later, a 27-year-old employee at the school found her yellow nylon purse missing. It is valued at £10.

The thief was white, in her 30s, with a pock-marked face and short dark brown hair.

Anyone with information about the theft at about 9am on June 6 should call police on 01322 283111 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
