Despicable thieves steal Christmas money from elderly couple

Footage of possibly the most audacious and callous theft we have ever come across.

Watch how one man distracts this elderly couple while his accomplice sneaks up behind them to steal money from the woman's bag.

Even worse, the two suspects had followed the couple around the bank - seeing them withdraw £700 - before shadowing them while they were shopping, waiting for the right moment to pounce.
