Police are appealing for information after a handbag theft in Newcastle.

Between 1am and 2am on Saturday, November 14, a handbag was stolen from inside the Lady Greys pub in Shakespeare Street.

The £500 Gucci bag contained cash, cosmetics, keys and medication.

Enquiries are ongoing into the theft and police are releasing a CCTV image of a man who they want to speak to in connection with the theft.

The image is from a CCTV camera inside the bar and although the quality isn't great you can still make out the profile of the man and basic description.

Information from witnesses suggests the man has X-men sleeve tattoos on both arms.

Anyone who recognises him, or who has any information as to his identity, is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference number 307 14/11/15.
