Church staff are attempting to trace the owner of a purse which was found in the building this morning.

The purse, which contained a quantity of cash but no cards or identification, was spotted at All Saints Church, in Oakham, today (Wednesday).

Administrator Janine Weaver said it is believed to belong to a female visitor who spent some time sitting at the back of the church.

She said: “We are very keen to reunite the purse with its owner and are hoping she will return for it soon.

“The woman spent some time in the church this morning and the purse was found not long after she left the building.”

If you are the owner, or you know who is, call Janine on 01572 724007.
