A man has made contact with police in Scarborough after a CCTV image was released as part of an ongoing investigation.

North Yorkshire Police earlier issued an appeal about the theft at a store in Cayton, which happened on May 12.

They said a man had stolen four bottles of WKD and a can of lager, before fleeing without paying.

The CCTV image showed a man who officers wanted to trace in connection with their enquiries.

Issuing an update, a force spokesman said: “The man shown in the CCTV image has now identified himself to the police.”

He also thanked the public and media for their help with the appeal.
