Officers believe he could have vital information in relation to the five robberies that occurred in Accrington, Great Harwood and Padiham overnight between Sunday, September 2 and Monday, September 3.

The CCTV images were taken in the Wetherspoons pub on Manchester Road in Burnley at around 10.45pm on September 2.

Detective Inspector Marie Haworth urged the man to come forward and contact the police.

She added: “I am very keen to stress that we do not believe that this man is involved in any way but we do think he could have information that could assist us.”

Anyone with information can contact police by calling the new non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, information can be passed via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
