The nationality of the thieves is unconfirmed.
• I wonder if their is a cultural sensitivity training course for Bulgarian migrants in which they are taught that it is culturally insensitive to financially wipe out elderly people.

Footage has been released of the moment a pensioner fell victim to a cashpoint distraction theft which led him to lose £23,000.
The 93-year-old man was in the St Peter's Hill branch of Natwest in Grantham when he was distracted by one of three suspects while another obtained his PIN and switched his cash card.
Within hours of the theft on 14 December, £23,000 was stripped from the victim's bank account.
A few days later when he tried to use his card again he realised he did not have his own card and he contacted police.
Detective Investigator Simon Bromily, who is leading the investigation, said: "What is quite clear from our enquiries so far is that these three men were very well organised in their deception and very selective about their victim.
"They watched the gentleman as he came into the bank and then carried out this despicable and callous theft.
"If you recognise any of these three men please contact us as soon as possible on 101. If you have any information that you think might aid our investigation please do get in touch."
