A woman had her purse snatched outside a Huddersfield bar ... and was then knocked down by a car.
Police have now appealed for witnesses to the incident in Huddersfield town centre.
The 21-year-old woman was standing with friends outside Chaos Bar in Kirkgate when the group was approached by the ginger-haired thief who took the victim’s purse from her handbag and fled.
