A CCTV image of a man who stole a mobile phone in Kendal has been released.

The theft happened at 2.20pm in McDonalds, Stricklandgate, on Boxing Day.

The mobile was stolen after it was left on a table by a 12-year-old local girl, who had been given the phone for her Christmas.

The man shown in the image is captured taking the phone from the table and has failed to hand it in to either Police or staff at the Restaurant.

Anyone who recognises either the male or female in the image should contact PC Woods at Windermere Police Station on ‘101’ or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 to pass any information anonymously.
