This is the man police are hunting after a stolen bank card was used to make transactions worth more than £1,000.

Officers investigating the theft say the card was used to withdraw £160 from a cash machine in Thornton.

The thief has also used it on a number of other occasions, stealing £1,180 in total.

PC Kevin Berry, based at Fleetwood police station, said the card was used at an ATM at the Spar on Lawsons Road, Thornton.

He added: “The CCTV shows a male that we believe is responsible for using a stolen card at an ATM at Spar Thornton on January 8 and as of yet his identity is not known.”

It is thought the card was also used at a cash machine at the Devonshire Road Post Office between Janaury 9 and 12.
