POLICE are appealing for the public’s help in trying to trace a man who is wanted in connection with an unpaid hotel bill in St Annes.

A man checked into the Grand Hotel on South Promenade on Monday June 20.

During a week-long stay at the plush seafront hotel, he managed to run up a bill of around £1,500 before leaving the hotel the following Monday June 27 without paying for his stay.

After becoming aware the fraudster had apparently fled without settling his account, staff at the venue called in police.

As part of their investigation officers have so far spoken to workers and trawled through footage from on-site cameras in a bid to uncover the identity of the man.

Police are now keen to speak with a man captured on CCTV as part of their inquiry into the mammoth unpaid bill and hope a member of the public may be able to help identify him.

If anybody knows the man in the image they are asked to call Blackpool Police on (01253) 293933 or 08451 25 35 45. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
