Police in Waltham Forest have released a CCTV image of a vaccum cleaner thief. 

The man was caught on camera shoplifting at B&Q in Leyton Mills retail park in Marshall Road on May 24.

He entered the store shortly after 2pm and picked up a vacuum cleaner, but a staff member became suspicious and when challenged, the man ran off with it. 

The CCTV images have been released to the Guardian as part of a joint venture with the Metropolitan Police to identify potential perpetrators of unsolved crimes in the borough.

Anyone with information should contact Waltham Forest police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
