A CCTV image of a man who may have information about a theft at a Tesco Express in Northampton has been released in a bid to trace the two culprits.

Police have released the still after the unusual incident took place at Tesco Express in Bordeaux Way, Duston, on Tuesday, November 17, between 9pm and 9.10pm.

A force spokeswoman said two men approached the checkout and, after paying for some chocolate and packets of cigarette papers with a £20 note, asked the cashier to change some money.

They then kept passing the cashier different notes, asking for them to be swapped, confusing the cashier and shouting at her. The till was later found to be £80 down.

The man, or anyone who recognises the man in the picture, is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
