An elderly woman was mugged on her doorstep by three people who followed her home.

The woman, in her 80s, drew out her pension in Station Road, Chingford, on Friday and took the 313 bus home to Kings Head Hill.

But three people - two Asian males and one Asian female - got the same bus and approached her outside her house.

They waved a book in her face to distract her and confused, she went into her house.

But there she realised her purse, which had £238 in it, was gone.

The incident happened at around 1.45pm on Friday.

No arrests have been made.
