Do you recognise this man?

Officers investigating a robbery on-board a train travelling between Southport and Birkdale stations are today releasing this image in connection.

At just before 2pm on Wednesday 21 July, the victim and two friends boarded a train as Southport where they were joined by a man and woman with a baby in a pram.

During the journey, the man engaged the victim in conversation before asking him to turn out his pockets and snatching £200 out of the victim’s hand.
