Superintendent Graham Barnett said: “We have had a great reaction from the public in sharing our appeal and would like to pass on our thanks to everyone who called in with information.

“One Facebook post alone was shared by more than 3,000 people and was seen by more than 170,000 Facebook users which shows the power of social media in modern policing, and the role that the public can play in supporting our investigations.”
