40 people chased down the OAPs mugger

The 70-year-old man shouted for help - and he certainly got it!

A massive crowd of 40 quick-thinking shoppers went after the criminal and caught her. How amazing is that?

The police soon arrived and arrested the mugger on suspicion of robbery and she was bailed after the incident.

Frankie Davison, who owns a local florist, said: "When he was getting cash out, a woman grabbed at it. He was screaming: 'She's got my money.' The man got his money back. It was a day when Gravesend really pulled together."

Talk about community spirit!
