Reward offered over Nellie Geraghty death

A member of the public is offering a £5,000 reward for details which lead to the recovery of a woman's handbag which she died trying to protect.

Nellie Geraghty, 79, was found clutching the strap of the bag, which had contained her late husband Frank's ashes, in Oldham on 24 November.

She suffered serious injuries and died in hospital the following day. The bag and the ashes have never been found.

Det Ch Insp Joanne Rawlinson, of Greater Manchester Police, appealed for several crucial witnesses to come forward.
