Officers want to speak to them in connection with the thefts which occurred in Watford town centre in December last year.

The elderly victims were distracted while using a HSBC cashpoint in Watford High Street and their bank cards were stolen and money was taken from their accounts.

PC Priya Patel, who is investigating the thefts, said: “We have obtained CCTV images of four men who may be able to provide information that is vital to the investigation.

“If you recognise the men, or if you recognise yourself, please contact me immediately.”
