A 31-year-old woman courageously decided to fight back against the thieves, after they stole £250 in cash from an ATM she was using.

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police yesterday released footage of her grappling with one of the thugs in Dagenham, east London, in a bid to track them down.

One of the men told the woman the cash point machine was not working, before the other reached over to press the £250 button on the screen at 4.10pm on Sunday.
