    No school like the old school

    Nice to see the handbag still in use as it should be, but how long until she is convicted of assault?

    Well done to her. Nice to see all the big strapping blokes intervene AFTER she's attacked them

    And they say that old people have bad reaction times, I was surprised at how slow the window guards were coming down and at how slow all the other people in the street were to react to the situation.

    SUPERGRAN!!!! to the rescue.

    She deserves a medal the size of a dustbin lid

    That is absolutely awesome. I saw the highlight at the start of the news, but had to go out so missed it - thanks for posting it up.

    It's the way she runs towards them that is crazy, it's like she's just skinned John Terry and is sprinting towards Petr Cech to tuck the ball nicely in the back of the net, a bit like Onuhua did when we beat them 3-0

    That is awesome.

    It is quite interesting from a psych point of view. There was a study that showed in a large crowd everyone expects someone else to step forward to help & until one person does, no one does. Classic example here, people were doing things, you can hear someone on the phone to the police, but it took someone to step in before everyone rushes forward. & it is a noticeable everyone.

    Top lady though. Hope she gets a nice pressie from the shop, although being a proper old school lass she'll probably shy away from any recognition.

    You forgot the bingo as well. I was talking to my mate yesterday and we got on about his gran being 83. He said she's at the bingo twice a day, 7 days a week, but she's got all her buttons so it must do something for her.

    Can't forget the bingo!

    There was something a bit 'Keystone Cops' about the robbers though wasn't there?

    I loved the numpty by the door who was struggling with the 'smash' part of 'smash and grab'...and then fell off his getaway vehicle...

    Fair play to the women though...she even got to the scene before the guys inside the shop! There must be an event for her at the 2010 games surely

    to be fair, their getaway vehicles were mopeds. you could have let them ride off and just walked next to them

    its a shame that white van didnt get them properly, he should have just knocked it in reverse and wiped em out. i'd gladly get a few dents on my car to clear scum like that off the street
