Corrie yob mugs vera

PUBLISHED August 19, 2004

Coronation Street's Vera Duckworth will be mugged as the soap tackles the real life subject of rising street crime.

Vera, 67, is out shopping with Frankie Baldwin (Debra Stevenson) when yobs try to snatch the younger woman's bag.
The Street storyline comes after a survey of those in Vera's age group showed they feared being mugged more than anything else. And 40 per cent of people of all ages quizzed were worried about being robbed in the street.
