A MAN distracted a pub-goer by trying to sell them a scratchcard before making off with their mobile phone.

The incident occurred at The Highwayman at Burrow, near Kirkby Lonsdale, sometime between 8pm and 10pm on Saturday, July 14, when the man approached a table offering scratchcards.

He then picked up the £500 iPhone which was on the table top without anyone noticing, left the restaurant, and made his escape in a car.

This CCTV image shows a man police want to speak to in connection with the incident.

Anyone with information should call Lancaster police on 101.
