THIS thief was caught on CCTV - and is a dead ringer for children's cartoon character Burglar Bill.

CCTV images of two men suspected of stealing electrical equipment from Waitrose on Christmas Eve have been released.

Police have this morning released images of two men believed to have stolen two cameras and X box controllers from Waitrose in Fossetts Way, Southend, on December 24.

One of the men had a distinctive striped top just like Burglar Bill.

Anyone who can name the two men, or knows anything about the stolen items, is asked to contact Dc Paul Brown at Southend CID on 101 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
