A woman lost hundreds of pounds from her account after her card became stuck in a cash machine.

Police are investigating the theft of cash which happened at the Tesco petrol garage in Bushey Heath at midday on April 17.

She was attempting to withdraw cash but the machine retained her card so she went to report the incident to staff inside Tesco.

It's believed while she was away, someone took her bank card from a device which had been placed inside the cash machine, causing the card to jam.

When the victim phoned up her bank a little later, she was told that hundreds of pounds had been withdrawn.

Police would like to speak to the man pictured in the CCTV image as they believe he was in the area at the time of the theft and may have information which could help with their investigation.
