A thug has been jailed for three years for attacking a woman who had just withdrawn a large sum of money from a cash machine in Hove.

Andy-Lee Fry, 27, of Montgomery Street, Hove, saw his victim go to Barclays Bank in Church Road and followed her around the area whilst she continued shopping.

At about 10.35am, she returned to her car which was parked in Tesco when Fry came up behind her, pushed her to the floor and grabbed her bag containing the cash, a passport and mobile phone.

The victim, who is local, suffered a cut to the back of her head as a result of the attack.
