Yesterday after leaving the market and returning to the car. Shopping safely in the boots, dog in back of car. I was sat in the passenger seat, door closed. My husband had sat in drivers seat just about to close the door. Suddenly a women. Aged mid 20’s, neck length brown hair, white shirt appeared from nowhere. Grabbed my husbands left arm and started asking if she could do cleaning work and she would supply her phone number.  My husband realised that she had put both hands on his wrist watch and tried to remove it. He pulled his arm away, removed his watch as was going to get out the car to retain her but she disappeared from where she came. We were continually telling her we didn’t want  a cleaner but she persisted in attempting to steal his watch. BEWARE

I know it's difficult for Brits but don't hesitate to use force on these people, it's all they understand. 

Also get your phones out and start filming, we need to get them nicked.

Thank you. Yes, thought about the phone after the event. Hope it never happens again but will be ready if it does. 😀
