Issuing advice to passengers, PC Orton added: “We take the theft of passenger property extremely seriously and one of our primary policing objectives is to reduce the number of people who become a victim.
“Always keep your belongings close by, check it regularly and be extra vigilant when the train stops at a station.
“If you move to another carriage, take your valuables with you – never leave them unattended and report any suspicious behaviour to staff or a police officer.”
