CCTV footage has been issued of a man detectives wish to speak to following a £1,000 burglary at a shop.
Police were called to reports of a burglary at an address on High Street North, East Ham, at 1.50am on Sunday.
The theft was reported to have occurred at some point between 11pm on Saturday and 1am on Sunday.
The footage, taken from the first floor office above a butcher’s shop, captured the moment the suspect broke through the office’s front door and covered the camera.
He then removed the floorboards in the room, climbed into the butcher’s shop and stole the cash from the till.
