Dramatic CCTV footage released by UK police has shone a light on the tactics of some of the most successful pickpockets.

The video shows a group of pickpockets trying to steal from unsuspecting members of the public.

West Midlands Police hoped the footage will be able to shine a spotlight on the tactics of real-live thieves as part of their #SpotThePickpocket initiative.

The two adults involved were both sentenced to 16 weeks in prison following the theft in Birmingham back in April 2011.
