Police are hunting for a burglar who stole a distinctive pair of trainers from a house in Blackpool.

Someone entered a house on St Mary’s Close through an insecure door in the early hours of May 7, and fled the scene with a handbag and the trainers after being disturbed by the homeowner’s dog barking.

The trainers were a pair of dark green Adidas Orion in size 11.5 (UK).

They are not on sale in this country, and were bought in Portugal.

A River Island leather handbag, a gun metal purse, a Nokia mobile phone and bank cards were also taken.

PC Nick Trangmar said: “I’d appeal to anybody with any information about this burglary or in particular who may have been offered these trainers for sale to get in touch.”

Call police on 101.
