A Spalding grandma clung on to the cable of her TV as a masked burglar fled with it through the bedroom window of her ground floor flat, after a terrifying ordeal in which she was kicked and beaten on the floor.
The woman, who is too afraid to give her name, said she had only nipped out for ten minutes around midnight on Saturday before the nightmare began.
Sitting in her riverbank home on Tuesday, with bruised arms and a swollen ankle, she said: “Maybe I should have let him go. But I work hard for the things I have. There was no way I was letting him have my TV without a fight.”
