Staff writer


An 81-year-old widow has told how she fought off a mugger who tried to steal from her as she withdrew her pension cash from an ATM.

Doreen Jones was at a cash machine in Blackheath, West Midlands, when she was attacked.

CCTV footage shows the retired car factory welder battling back against the would-be thief.

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."
