A bizarre police e-fit appeal has attracted a lot of attention after people compared the wanted man with a Lego figure.

Northamptonshire Police issued the image to try to catch a distraction burglar ho knocked on a woman's door and told the occupant he needed to check the pipes due to "sewage issues".

The force said she was in the back garden with the man in Vernon Walk,

Northampton, when another person entered the property and stole cash between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on Thursday.

People have since used social media to liken the image to fictional characters, including Drop Dead Fred and a character from the video game Grand Theft Auto.
