I WAS walking to Birkenhead Park station when someone came up behind me and snatched my handbag.

He was on a bike and sped off.

I would like to thank all the good people who helped - the lady who offered to buy my train ticket, the guy who tried to phone the police but especially the guy who chased the thief to Beckwith Street and lost his own mobile in the process.

Thank you all.

The main loss is my old phone with photos that will be gone forever.

Please take care and don’t let it happen to you.
