Police have released a CCTV image of a man and a woman they want to speak to after a Poppy Appeal collection box was stolen in Denmead. The incident happened at around 4.40pm on Friday, November 7 when a man and a woman entered the Southern Co-op, Hambledon Road. After walking around the store, the man distracted the cashier while the woman stole the collection box, which was at the till.

This was a disgraceful crime which is disrespectful to those who have given so much for our country. I would urge everybody to look at these pictures and get in touch with us if you recognise these people, or have any other information that could assist our inquiry.
