Police have released this CCTV image of a man they believe has information about a burglary at a Hornchurch leisure centre.

On October 25, at about 3.30pm, a man entered Hornchurch Sports Centre and after speaking to a member of staff at reception was asked to sit in the waiting room.

It is believed the man then entered an area of the Hornchurch Road building meant only for staff and stole a number of electrical items.

The man police are trying to trace is described as white, approximately 22, 5ft 8in and of medium build with short dark brown hair.

He was seen wearing grey tracksuit bottoms, a grey hooded top, white trainers and a black baseball cap, carrying a Tesco carrier bag.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Havering’s Serious Acquisitive Crime Unit on 01708 779 209 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
