While she spoke to him, a second man took her purse from her bag, which she had placed in her car.

A police spokeswoman said: "It is believed the woman had been observed entering her PIN while paying for her shopping, as her bank card was then used to take out cash at several ATMs in the town."

The men pictured, or anyone who recognises them, are asked to contact Northamptonshire Police on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
