Police have issued an image of a man, seen driving a car with false number plates, who allegedly drove off without paying for fuel.

The image, taken at Swanwick Service Station on April 10, 2014, shows the man standing by a red Ford Focus which had different number plates on the front and the back.

The front plate had been stolen, that same morning, from a Citroen Xsara and the rear plate was stolen from a Ford Focus, both of which had been parked in the Cotes Park Inn car park in Somercotes.

Officers would like to speak to the man in the image. He is thought to be about 50-years-old and was wearing a black woollen hat and dark overalls.

Anyone with information should contact the police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
