    Police are urging visitors to city centres to be especially vigilant for new gang
    operating a slick routine that is aimed at stealing from unwary persons.

    They say that the gang usually comprises four members.

    While the three younger ones, all appearing to be cute and innocent,
    divert their "mark" (or intended target) with a show of friendliness and fun,
    the fourth - the eldest of this gang of criminals - sneaks in from behind the
    person's back to expertly rifle undetected through their pockets and bags for any
    valuables being carried.

    The attached picture taken from CCTV operating in the inner city
    shows the gang in operation.

    Do you want me to audio describe for you?

    Woman is crouching down on a pavement, smiling, extending her hand to a trio of cute ducklings. Meanwhile, a mother duck is reaching into her handbag, which is on her shoulder, but at ground level because she's crouched down, and is removing a bank note from it.:biggrin:

    No, you've got it wrong!

    A mother duck is anxious to get to her new job at KwakSave and is paying a woman to babysit.
