A CCTV appeal has been launched after more than £100 was taken from a cash machine in Potters Bar.

Officers have released an image of a man they would like to speak to, as they believe he may be able to assist with enquiries.

Just after 5pm on Wednesday, April 21, a man used the cash machine outside Tesco Express in Orchard Parade in Mutton Lane.

When he had completed his transaction, he forgot to take his money - totalling £110 - leaving it in the ATM. 

The next person to use the machine took the money and left the area.
