Shaw residents help in hunt for killer

Residents of a Greater Manchester village where a woman died after she was mugged for her handbag are helping police in the search for her killer.

Nellie Geraghty, 79, was hurt as she tried to stop her bag - which contained her late husband's ashes - being stolen in Shaw, Oldham, on 24 November.

Locals told the BBC's Nina Warhurst why they had joined the search.
