CCTV images of a woman police would like to speak to in connection with shoplifting in East Lancashire have been released.

Officers said they believed she might be able to give them vital information about incidents in Darwen and Rishton.

It comes after seven bottles of washing up liquid were stolen from the Co-Op store, in Church Street, Darwen, at 6.55pm on October 31 last year.

A large white shopping bag was filled with items including coffee, washing up liquid and whisky at the Co-Op in Harwood Street, Rishton, on March 15 and 16, 2014.

The same shop was targeted twice on March 23. At 3.10pm, a woman, who was described as white, with brown, long hair, and wearing a red and white striped cardigan with blue jeans, put coffee and salmon into a cream shopping bag.

She left without paying and returned with the cream shopping bag empty a few minutes later and took the same items again.

Anybody with information is asked to call police on 101.
