POLICE have released an image of two people they'd like to speak to after a food delivery was stolen from a pub in Sturminster Marshall.

A man and woman pulled up outside the Red Lion Inn in a white Mercedes Vito and carrying an empty blue oil barrel, according to reports made to police.

They were described as wearing hi-vis jackets and being 'dressed like delivery drivers'. 

They then loaded eight containers of rapeseed oil and a delivery of frozen fish into the back of the van before driving away.

The total value of the stolen items is around £500.

It is reported that the incident occurred between 7.15am and 8.30am on Tuesday, January 30.
