CCTV images have been released as part of an appeal by Merseyside detectives investigating a burglary at a Wirral-based optical practice.

At around 2am on June 8, offenders broke into Harris Opticians on Banks Road in West Kirby and stole a large amount of designer sunglasses.

Detectives have shared images of a tattooed man they believe may have information about the incident to assist enquiries.

Detective Constable John Molyneux said: ‘This incident resulted in a significant financial loss and distress for the owners, at a time where all our local businesses are in the midst of economic hardship. We will continue to support our business communities, find those responsible and put them before the courts.’

Police have asked anyone with information to share information via social media with the reference 20000331525 or anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers.
