POLICE want to speak with two people in connection with the theft of designer sunglasses from Lakeside.

The pair pictured in CCTV images released by the force are wanted after a woman distracted a member of staff at Vision Express while a man concealed four pairs of sunglasses in his pockets before leaving the store without making any attempt to pay.

The offence took place at about 11.15am on Monday.

Anyone who recognises the people pictured is asked to contact police in Thurrock on 101.
