PC Shaun Woods from the St Albans Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “Have you been offered cheap Champneys products, including 30 Jessica nail varnishes, Decleor creams and serums and Mothers’ Day boxes, for sale?

“If so, we would like to hear from you, as they may have been stolen.

“Although the CCTV is not very clear, someone may recognise this man. We would like to speak to him as he may have information that could help the investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting crime reference number F1/17/1851.

There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
