Police are appealing for information to find a Braintree man, who is wanted in connection with theft.

Officers would like to talk to Ben Chapman regarding a theft from a shop in Station Road, Felsted, at around 2.10pm on Sunday, April 23.

A man walked into Linsells, in the Essex village – which is located near Dunmow, Braintree and Chelmsford – and selected three bottles of champagne off the shelves.

The man then put them into a bag and walked out of the village store without paying.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Pc Rosie Smith at Chelmsford police station on 101.
