North Yorkshire Police want to speak to the pair over the sale of some fish to an elderly woman in her own home in Eggborough, north of Doncaster.

On Friday 9 February , the two men pictured were seen on Water Lane and knocked on the door of a 96-year-old woman.

When she answered the door, one of the men walked into her home uninvited, and proceeded to unpack the fish into her freezer and then requested £100 from her.

Feeling intimidated and wanting the man out of her home, she handed over £60.
