Police have today (January 8) released an image of a woman they want to speak to after the incident at the Tesco Express in Market Place between 9.45pm and 10pm on November 27.

The woman - who officers believe was in Oundle for a wedding - tried to buy alcohol but a member of staff refused the sale and the woman became verbally aggressive and left.

She then returned to try and buy the alcohol again but was refused for a second time and picked up a bottle of wine before throwing it at a member of staff.
