A bizarre police e-fit appeal, a digital version of a police sketch, has attracted a lot of attention after people compared the wanted man with a Lego figure.

Northamptonshire Police issued the image to try to catch a distraction burglar who knocked on a woman’s door and told the occupant he needed to check the pipes due to “sewage issues”.


The force said she was in the back garden with the man in Vernon Walk, Northampton when another person entered the property and stole cash between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on Thursday.

People have since used social media to liken the image to fictional characters, including Drop Dead Fred...

...and a character from the video game Grand Theft Auto.



One Facebook user, Kriss Manley, said:

“Looks like he is the star of the Lego movies.”


Another user, Christopher Ellingham, said:

“Distraction burglary….was his face the distraction?”

Ursula Ribeiro, also on Facebook, said:

“Northamptonshire Police win the ‘I just came here for the comments’ award again!
“They certainly know how to cheer up a dull Friday…thanks for the giggles!”



Police have asked anyone who recognizes the man in the image to come forward.

A tanning addict who admits to soaking up sun without using protection for decades talked to Press Association about how a pink pimple on the end of her nose turned out to be sunbathing-induced skin cancer.

Her nose had to be covered using a radical technique known as a reconstructive skin flap, involving three operations in May and June, after Laure Seguy was diagnosed with skin cancer. She blames her tanning addiction and has now drastically overhauled her relationship with the sun.
