Police are trying to trace this man who is known to frequent the Newham and Stratford areas.

Police are appealing for help to trace a man in connection with the robbery of a £10,000 watch and an assault on a member of staff at a shop in Westfield shopping centre.

On Saturday, January 6, a man entered a store in the centre in Stratford and asked to try on a Breitling Super Avenger II watch - valued at more than £10,000.

Following an earlier police appeal, officers are appealing for assistance in tracing 32-year-old Aklakur Rahman in connection with the incident.
