A grandmother in Durham, England, chased a thief 50 years her junior for several minutes after he raided her home before managing to catch him. Betty Thornton, 83, a former store detective, said: "I know I'm getting on a bit. But I'm still a good runner."

Renzo Da-Pra, 45, was refused bail and will reappear in Liverpool Local Court on January 27.
