On Friday June 15, a man drove a white Ford Transit van on to the forecourt of the Tesco petrol station on Beaumount Street before filling it with fuel.

He was wearing black tracksuit bottoms with a white stripe down the side, black trainers with a white sole and white Nike tick down the side, a dark T-shirt with white writing on the front, a dark blue bodywarmer with a hood, and a flat-style cap.

Police have released an image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.
