Detectives hunting crooks who stole catalytic converters from three vehicles in a Northampton car park have made a fresh appeal for help.

Brazen thieves jacked up three cars to take the valuable parts in broad daylight from the Albion Place car park in Swan Street between 3.30pm and 3.40pm on Friday, February 7.

Police issued another CCTV image of one of the three men they want to speak to in connection with the thefts.
