A THIEF who stole the hand­bag of a woman who died af­ter fall­ing into a canal is be­ing hunted by cops.

The 40-year-old woman is un­der­stood to have put her shop­ping bags and hand­bag down to feed the ducks be­fore she fell in the Leeds and Liver­pool Canal in Boo­tle on Jan­uary 9.

Mersey­side Po­lice want to trace a white man aged 24-25, seen rid­ing a grey bike in the area.

But In­spec­tor Karen Dowden said: “I want to make it clear that we want to speak to this man into the theft of a hand­bag.

“We are treat­ing the death of this woman as non-sus­pi­cious, as we do be­lieve that she had stum­bled and fallen into the canal.”

The woman died af­ter be­ing taken to hos­pi­tal by emer­gency ser­vices.

Some items from her hand­bag were found fur­ther down the canal tow­path.

The po­lice de­scribed the wanted man as hav­ing medium-length mousy brown hair and wear­ing a black coat and dark track­suit bot­toms.
