A thief stole from a man who was lying unconscious after suffering a medical episode in Sheffield.

Police have released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to after the incident in Weston Park.

The victim, a 29-year-old man, was unconscious on a bench in the park after falling ill at around 6pm on 30 December. 

While he was vulnerable, a man stole his jacket which contained his bank card. 

The card was then used fraudulently at a number of shops in Sheffield.
