An 81-year-old woman who was mugged in a London street was ignored by passers-by as she lay dying from her injuries, police have disclosed.

Molly Morgan was dragged to the ground and suffered fatal head injuries after being attacked from behind, but was left on the pavement for 10 minutes before being taken to hospital. People who could have helped her walked past thinking she was merely drunk.

Mrs Morgan’s daughter Hilary, a talented artist from Surrey, released a painting of her mother’s bag, which was stolen. It contained only an electrical extension lead and an umbrella from Primark. The painting is intended to help the witness appeal.

She said: “My mum was so active and full of life. I still can’t believe she has been taken away from me. I am her only daughter and we were close. She encouraged me in my dream of going to art school.

“If this painting helps to catch the person who killed her, it’s the most important painting I’ve ever done.”

Mrs Morgan, who had lived in the local area for more than 50 years, was on her way to Kenton Library in Harrow for a lecture when she was attacked. The pensioner had trained as an architect but gave up work to become a full-time mother. She was a member of the Royal Horticultural Society and sat on the London committee of the Worker Education Association, a group that supports adult education.
