Police are trying to identify a man in connection with damage caused at a boatyard in Northumberland.

He is one of two men who broke into the Factory Point Boatyard and stole a dinghy - simply to cross the river and avoid a long walk.

Anyone with any information into the incident, or who recognises who the man pictured in the image is, is asked to contact police in Blyth on 03456 043 043 ext 69191 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
