This is the man police want to speak to after jewellery was stolen from a guest staying at a seafront Blackpool hotel.

The offender was spotted by staff after taking a suitcase from outside a guest’s room at the Royal Seabank Hotel, on the Promenade, and forced it open.

Police investigating the theft say he then took Swarovsky jewellery and GHD hair straighteners from inside before being disturbed by staff and running away.

He fled in the direction of the Manchester pub following the incident, which took place at around 5pm on August 11.

The man is described as a white male in his early 30s, 5ft 6ins tall and of a medium build.

He was wearing light red knee-length shorts and a black tracksuit top with white markings.

PC Kirsty Taylor, of Blackpool Police, said: “We are keen to speak to the man in the CCTV images in connection with our inquiries and would urge anyone with information to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting crime reference AM1410251, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
