A good Samaritan who helped two women who claimed to be stranded in Northamptonshire had his camera stolen by the pair.

The man was driving along Station Road, Kettering, at about 1.40pm on Tuesday, June 2, when he was flagged down by two young women who said their car had broken down.

He agreed to give them a lift to King Street, but when they got out of the car, he noticed his Minolta camera had gone missing.

The first woman was black, aged about 20, slim, with black shoulder length hair.

She was wearing black shiny trousers, a dark top, shoes which may have had a leopard print on them and was carrying a pale coloured handbag.

The second woman was white, about 5ft 4in and was very thin with short dark brown hair.

She was wearing blue tracksuit bottoms with a pale stripe on them, a grey hoodie and was carrying two mobile phones.

Witnesses, or anyone who knows anything about this incident, should call Northamptonshire Police on 101.
