Police have released a CCTV image of a man they want to question after phones and cash were stolen at a sports centre near Ipswich.

Two football teams were each given a key to individual changing rooms at Ipswich School’s Rushmere Sports Centre.

As one of the team members was locking up the changing room, he was approached by a man posing as a member of staff who offered to take the key and hand it back into reception.

The key was handed over to the man before it was later discovered that a number of phones and money had been stolen from inside the changing room.

The theft took place at the sports venue in The Street, Rushmere St Andrew between 2pm and 2.30pm on Saturday, November 1.
