Police have released a CCTV image of one of two men they want to speak to in connection with a post office theft.

Surrey Police said the pair managed to steal £360 from a cashier after asking them to change £700 into different denominations and then euros.

Both men were described as being Mediterranean-looking and boarded a number 410 bus after they left the post office in Bletchingley on 15 February.

Detectives have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.

"This was a complex theft carried out in a busy post office in order to put the clerk under extra pressure," said Det Con Errol Chetty, of Surrey Police.

"After duping the victim these men calmly left the store and boarded a 410 bus in the direction of Oxted.

"Were you on the bus at the time and remember seeing two men matching the suspects' description?

"We are exploring CCTV opportunities from that bus."
