CCTV appeal after hand sanitiser stolen from hospital

Police have issued a CCTV image of a man they wish to speak to after hand sanitiser was stolen from Northampton General Hospital.

Officers said the incident happened at about 7.45pm on March 9 – four days after the UK’s first coronavirus-linked death was confirmed.

It is believed a man pulled the sanitiser unit off its stand, damaging a wall, and made off.

Officers investigating the incident believe a man captured on CCTV may have information that could help their inquiries and are encouraging him or anyone who recognises him to call Northamptonshire Police on 101.
