A PHOTOGRAPHER taking pictures on the Malvern Hills had his camera and iPad stolen on Sunday lunchtime.

He was on the summit of the Herefordshire Beacon and has just put his new GoPro camera and the Apple tablet into his bag, when it was wrenched from his shoulder, tearing the strap.

He then looked to his right and saw a man with his bag in his left hand; he was then been joined by another male and they both made off in the Castlemorton direction.

The incident happened between 1pm and 1.15pm, and anyone with information is urged to call police on 101, quoting incident number

0361S 181015.
