Police have released CCTV of a man after a replica English Civil War helmet was stolen in Whitby.

It was taken from reception at the Victoria Hotel in Robin Hoods Bay around 11 in the morning on the 18th July.

He's described as white, between 4ft and 4ft 6in tall with short brown hair which is thinning at the front and is thought to be from Dorset.

If you are the man in the CCTV and you are not responsible for this theft, I urge you to come forward so that I can eliminate you from my enquiries.

I also need to speak to anyone who can help to identify the man or may have been offered the helmet for sale, and ask them to contact me straight away.
