A GROUP of people followed an elderly man home on a bus from Banbury to Kings Sutton before stealing his bank card.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the man, in his 70's, was approached and had a liquid squirted at him.

It is believed while he was distracted another member of the group stole the card.

It was then used to withdraw money from the man's account, and police believe the thieves got the PIN by watching the man use his card while he was in Banbury.

The incident happened on March 16 between 10.15am and 1pm.

Northamptonshire Police has released CCTV images of four people they believe may have information about the incident.

Witnesses to the incident, or anyone who recognises any of the people pictured, are asked to contact Northamptonshire Police on 03000 111 222.
