A WOMAN, who left her purse in a trolley at Sidmouth's Waitrose store, wants to thank the honest shopper who handed it in.
Sheila Lee was half way to her Peaslands Road home last Thursday, after stocking up on shopping, when she realised her purse was still in the trolley she had used.
"I can't really believe I would ever get it back, you think that is it," said Mrs Lee, 77.
"The person who found it didn't leave a name and I would really like to thank them. It is such a relief.

Mrs Lee, who cannot understand how she left her purse behind, said: "It must have been found by the next person to use the trolley. It restores your faith in people and I would like to be able to thank them personally if they would like to come forward."
After her worrying experience she added: "From now on I will just take my bank card in my pocket when I go to Waitrose.
