An antique clock and a wallet are among the haul of items stolen from several shops in Lymington.

Police are investigating the spate of thefts that occurred on January 25, and are keen to identify this woman in connection to the incidents.

An antique clock worth £1,200 was stolen from Dials Antique Clocks on Quay Hill, and shortly after, a hair appliance worth £200 was stolen from Jack & The Wolfe.

The shoplifting spree continued at White Stuff where a member of staff in her 40s was assaulted during the incident.

However, the stolen items are yet to be confirmed.

A wallet was then stolen from Costa Coffee in the high street and the cards in the wallet used fraudulently thereafter.

Hampshire Constabulary has now released an image of the woman they would like to speak to.
