POLICE have released an image of a man they wish to speak to after criminal damage in Newcastle city centre.

Officers are investigating after a spate of graffiti was sprayed across the multi-storey car park at Manors earlier this month.

It was reported that a number of tags were painted in the area on May 7, but when police arrived the person had already left the area.

Inquiries to locate the person responsible are ongoing, and the graffiti has now been removed, but police have now released images of a man they need to speak to.

He was in the area at the time and may be able to assist police with their investigation.

Anyone with information should report it online at the Northumbria Police website quoting reference 051110G/20.

You can also report information by calling 101 or independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
