Police are appealing for information after a report of a racially aggravated offence in Lancaster.

The incident happened on 11 December between 11.15 and 12pm in a coffee shop in the Holiday Inn on Caton Road.

"As part of our enquiries, we now have an image of a man who we think may be able to help us with our investigation."
