The 43-year-old victim has been on the school run when he accidentally dropped his mobile phone which has his bank cards inside the case.

The cards are then used four times at different shops.

Police have now released images of a man that could help them with their inquiries.

PC Chris Cutts, who is investigating the incident, said: “Rather than doing the decent thing and handing the mobile phone and cards to the police and being a good Samaritan, the suspect decides he will use the cards for his own personal gain.

“We have now released images of a man that could help with our inquiries. Do you recognise the man in the images? Are you the man in the images? Please get in touch immediately.”

Anyone with information can call 101 quoting incident number 0550 of 6 February 2023 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
