Here's a man police want to question over the theft of a venetian blind from a furniture shop in Northampton.

The alleged thief was captured on camera with what appears to be the stolen 7ft blind hidden under the hood of his jacket.

He is accused of entering the store and concealing the blind down one trouser leg and up the back of his jacket.

"Police have released a picture of a man who they wish to trace in connection with an alleged theft of a venetian blind," Northamptonshire Police said in a statement.

"He then left the store making no attempt to pay for the item. He was followed by staff up a nearby canal path, where he dropped the blind before making off.

"The blind was damaged as a result. Officers would like to speak with the man pictured."
