Police are looking to speak to a man in connection with a theft of a laptop on a train.

Police said a woman left her laptop bag on a train when she stepped off to give her friend a card.

The service, travelling between Lewes and Haywards Heath, left before she was able to get back on.

The bag was handed to staff but the laptop was missing.

British Transport Police said: “Officers would like to speak to the man shown in the CCTV image as he may have information which could help with the investigation.

“If you recognise him or have any information about the theft, please call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016.”
