A man had his England football shirt stolen during a robbery in Newbury. 

The 40-year-old was walking his dog between Newbury Football Club and the A339 underpass when he noticed a man covering his face with a white t-shirt walking toward him.

He pushed and pinned the man to the floor, while another searched the victim's pockets. 

A passer-by disturbed the robbers and they fled without taking any money but ran off with an England football top which the victim had been wearing.

The robbery occurred just after midnight on Saturday, July 23. 

One of the robbers is described as a white man, around 6ft 2ins tall with a slim build.

Anyone with information about this incident should contact PC Teresa Miller via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.

Alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

He pushed and pinned the man to the floor, while another searched the victim's pockets" This does not make sense. Poor reporting.
