After leaving the shop, the woman returned having realised she had left the phone, which had by then been taken.

North Yorkshire Police hope to speak to a man in connection with the incident. It is believed that the man caught on camera picked up the phone and left the shop.

Pc Kelvin Troughton, of Harrogate Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “If you recognise the man caught on CCTV I ask that you contact the police straight away.

“I am also keen to speak to the man himself, as it is possible there has been some confusion and he is not responsible for this theft. I urge him to get in touch immediately.”

Anyone who can help with this investigation is asked to contact Harrogate police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Kelvin Troughton. Information can also be emailed to kelvin.troughton@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk.
