CHAMPAGNE and other bottles of alcohol were stolen from a branch of Waitrose in the New Forest during two separate incidents this month.

Police have released two CCTV images of men who may have information about the incidents, which happened at the Lymington branch.

The first took place between 4.15pm and 4.35pm on January 12, when a man walked into the shop in Stanford Road and stole more than £300-worth of alcohol.

In another incident, which took place shortly before 11am on January 17, a man entered the branch and stole Champagne worth almost £400.

A spokesperson from Hampshire police said: "Officers would like to speak to the men pictured as they may have information to assist our investigations into these two incidents."

Anyone who recognises either of the men should contact police on 101.
