Police have warned music lovers about a number of robberies where the victims have been wearing earphones whilst walking along the street.

"They haven’t heard the suspect approach them until suspects have grabbed their property," Manpreet Bains told "I would urge people to be vigilant and reconsider use of the earphones whilst they are walking in public place."

Police's non urgent telephone number is 0300 123 12 12 or CrimeStoppers on 0800 555111. Always dial 999 in an emergency.
