A heartless thief stole an iPhone from a baby girl's hands while her mum's back was turned.

Little Luella was watching a film of Barney the Dinosaur in her pram when the thief — who appears to be middle-aged with greying hair and glasses — struck after following the family into a busy clothes store.

The 20-month-old Kirkby tot's mum Danielle Hinnigan had turned her back briefly to browse a rack of clothes, and then heard Luella saying "Mummy, Barney gone, gone".
