Police have released CCTV footage of a street robbery where one of the offenders hugged and kissed the victim pretending that they knew her.

It happened at around 8.20am on Saturday 17 June on Bobbers Mill Road in Nottingham. A woman was on her mobile phone on the street when a dark coloured Vauxhall Vectra pulled up and a woman got out and approached her.

The woman hugged and kissed her on the cheek before forcibly pulling her Asian gold necklace from around her neck.
