Elderly woman used handbag to tackle robbers


Britain today has an unlikely crime-fighting hero in the form of an elderly woman who used her handbag to tackle a gang of robbers who were raiding a jewellers.

It all happened in Northampton yesterday, as a gang of six men on motorbikes arrived at a high street jewellery store and smashed windows with sledgehammers.

While most onlookers were happy to keep their distance, call police and film the robbery for YouTube, one elderly woman decided to take matters into her own hands.

As this footage shows, she sprinted down the road before letting the guys have it with her handbag and generally giving them what-for.
Most of the gang managed to flee the assault of the furious granny, but two fell from their bike and other passers-by (inspired by super-gran) managed to restrain one.

Police say four men have now been arrested in connection with the incident.
