Police are appealing for information following an attempted theft from a vehicle in Dewsbury.

The Kirklees District Crime is investigating an offence on Sugar Lane, Dewsbury on Sunday, April 14 in which a man was seen trying to gain access to a car parked there at about 5.46am and then at 11.40pm on the same evening.

Officers have release CCTV stills of the suspect. They appreciate that the images are not sharp, but think it is important to issue them in case residents saw a man wearing the same clothing in the area, and may have information to identify him, or better footage of him.
