We have now managed to enhance the image and from this it is clear that he was also wearing dark jacket with a distinctive logo on the back. Do you know someone who has such a jacket, and who suddenly seemed to have a lot of cash that day? If you recognise the suspect's description or saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at this time please get in contact. It was a very hot day and the jacket would have seemed out of place.

Police investigating a robbery at a Bexhill Newsagents have published a CCTV image of the suspect. The robbery happened at the Marina News newsagents, in Marina, Bexhill-on-Sea, on Saturday 14th June at 3.39pm.
A 20-year-old woman, who was working behind the shop's counter, was threatened and grabbed by a man with a large kitchen knife who demanded money from the till and stole £450.
The suspect was described as a white man, aged 25 to 40, 5' 8" to 5' 11" and of skinny build. He was wearing black all-in-one overalls with white trainers, and an army green beanie hat. The man disguised his face with dark sunglasses and a false ginger beard.
A 68-year-old woman awoke to find a burglar in her Bexhill bedroom.
In the early hours of Sunday morning a person broke into a house in Bexhill and the 68-year-old woman woke up to find the person in her room.
They stole distinct antique rings, one with a pink diamond and the other with rubies as well as a string of freshwater pearls.
This was obviously a terrifying experience for the woman and we are working closely with her to establish the full facts of the incident.
We are keen to speak with anyone who may have been in the area around 1.35am or have information that could assist the investigation. The suspect is described as slim and dressed all in black except their hands, which were small, and they had a well spoken voice.
The victim said they were young but is unsure if they were a man or a woman."
Police are asking for the public's help to find a missing teenager from Bexhill. Jake Gillespie, who's 15, failed to turn up for school on Tuesday morning. Police believe Jake may be staying with friends in Hastings.
Sgt Dave Gill said: "Jake has in fact been missing since Saturday but he arrived home in Elderwood Close, Bexhill, for a short time on Monday morning and has not returned. We are asking Jake to get in touch to say he is OK.
We know Jake frequents skate parks in Hastings and it's possible that he may be staying with friends in the town. Local officers are aware that he has been reported missing." Anyone who knows where he is is asked to contact police. Jake is white, 5' 4'', pale with a teddy boy-style blonde haircut.
Archaeologists from Oxford surveying the site of a controversial road scheme have found flint tools dating back 12,000 years. The scientists have been carrying out excavations along the route of the Bexhill to Hastings link road in Sussex.
Protesters say the road is unnecessary and a blight on the landscape.
But its construction is giving archaeologists a unique opportunity to discover more about the way our ancient ancestors lived. Malcolm Shaw reports.
