Officers are appealing for information following the theft of a purse and fraud. 
The incident happened on 5 November at 11.30pm on a train from London Euston to Carlisle. 
The victim, a woman, boarded the train and fell asleep after it departed Preston station.
The woman had placed her bag underneath the seat with her purse inside.
