Police officers investigating a series of thefts from the Glade of Light Memorial in Manchester city centre have appealed for help to identify a male they want to speak to.

“Whilst we are carrying out our own enquiries, I ask anyone who can help identify the male in the CCTV image to contact us or Crimestoppers immediately.”

Anyone with information should contact 0161 856 1930 or quoting 4 20/06/22 .

Information can also be shared anonymously, via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
