Surrey Police released an e-fit in the hunt for a man suspected of conning an elderly woman from Addlestone out of thousands of pounds.

Police said that the suspect impersonated a detective constable on making contact with the victim — an 88-year-old woman from Addlestone — on Sunday October 27.

"Over the course of four days, the suspect persuaded the victim to withdraw money on a number of occasions arranging to meet them at their home address in Addlestone.

"In total, the 88 year old victim was defrauded out of over £20,000," a spokesperson for the police said.
