    Mr Carroll said: ‘The monkey approached the woman when it saw her bag and jumped to get it before ripping it open for a proper look.

    ‘I’d say there were just a few personal bits, I think there was a glasses case and other items but no food.

    ‘I was shocked as we had just arrived off the cable cars.

    Originally from the Atlas Mountains and the Rif Mountains of Morocco, the Barbary macaque population in Gibraltar is the only wild monkey population on the European continent.

    Ongeveer 230 Barbary macaques are thought to live on the Rock of Gibraltar.

    It is not the first time tourists to Gibraltar have been caught out by the cheeky monkeys.
