Police want to speak to this man.

The bag belonged to a girl who was heading to Dublin to celebrate her 21st birthday with her boyfriend.

She left her bag in the waiting shelter on platform 16 at 4.45am on Monday December 7 when she boarded a train. As soon as she left a man picked up the bag, and removed cash from the wallet.

Investigating officer PC Gemma Harman said: “The man clearly was an opportunist thief who seized his chance to steal the victim’s bag which contained her passport, plane tickets and cash. It was a real shame that due to the theft she was unable to travel to Dublin to celebrate her birthday.”
