A brave 81-year-old widow has told how she fought off a mugger who tried to steal from her as she withdrew her pension money from a cashpoint.

Doreen Jones was at a cash machine in Blackheath High Street, West Midlands, when she was attacked by a young woman who initially tried to beg from her.

Remarkable CCTV footage shows the twice-widowed retired car factory welder battling back and forcing the mugger to run off.

Mrs Jones said of the incident: 'She wasn't expecting me, I tell you. She was expecting somebody more vulnerable, and they picked the wrong one when they picked Doreen.'
