Police have released a CCTV image of woman following a robbery at a hotel in Blackpool.

The incident happened at the H Hotel on Hornby Road at around 8am on August 20, where the victim was assaulted and had money stolen. 

Investigating officers are asking for the public’s help in identifying the woman in the CCTV image, as they believe she may be able to help with their enquiries.

PC Sally Blair, of Blackpool Police, said: “We have followed a number of lines of enquiry and are now at a point where we are asking for the public’s help. In particular we would like to speak to the woman in the CCTV image.

“Though the incident occurred in Blackpool, we believe the woman may be from Preston. 

“If you recognise her, or if the woman herself sees this appeal, we would urge you to get in touch.”

Anybody with information should email 5290@lancashire.police.uk or call 101, quoting log 383 of August 20.
