On 31st December at B&M in Whitehaven a young girl had her money she got for Christmas stolen.

The police were called and PC Kelly Pennington and PCSO Simon Kane attended and proceeded to establish what happened. The young girl had a purse with her, which contained all her money she had received from Christmas. She then innocently left it on the till and this was stolen by an opportunistic thief.

PCSO Kane proceeded to go and take the money out of his own bank account to give to the little girl. The family have been overwhelmed by the token of kindness and generosity and sent their thanks to the officer.

Inspector Mark Wear said: “This was a selfless act which showed a great deal kindness towards the young girl. It demonstrates the caring and generous nature of police officers working within Cumbria Constabulary. Both officers have been praised and thanked by the victim and her family. We are very proud of their actions.”

A 48 year old woman from Whitehaven has been interviewed regarding the theft and enquiries are ongoing.
