Heartless thieves stole cash from a deaf and blind grandma when she was at home alone.
Marjorie Hitchcock sat helplessly as robbers ransacked her home on Saturday while she was sitting in her living room.
The 89-year-old, who is partially deaf and partially sighted, heard footsteps and thought it was her son. She called out to him and one of the callous thieves responded "yes".
Mrs Hitchcock became uncomfortable when she heard someone moving about upstairs and alarm bells began to ring.
The two men then went into the living room where the vulnerable grandma, who will be 90 in April, was sitting and went to a cupboard where she kept a substantial amount of money.
Her great-granddaughter, Yasmin Hitchcock, revealed the thieves had gained entry by forcing the back door open with a crowbar.
Yasmin believes they had been watching the property in Belper and said her great gran has been left "shaken" and too frightened to leave her own home.
The 28-year-old, told Derbyshire Live: “I’m just really angry and disgusted that people would even think about doing this to anyone, never mind and 89-year-old lady in her own home.
“She’s really shook up about it. She won’t leave her house no matter what, even if it’s just to go out shopping.
Derbyshire police have urged members of the public to come forward with any information and the two men are described "as tall and slim.”
