POLICE have issued CCTV images of a woman they want to talk to following an attempted robbery in Selsey.

A teenage girl has reported that she left a shop in the High Street at about 9.20pm on October 19, when a woman approached her and threatened her, demanding money.

This happened between the One Stop shop in the High Street and Lewes Road. She was disturbed and the woman fled.
