We're being asked to help find a man police want to speak to over a series of credit card thefts.

This has been happening at hotels across Cornwall and Devon

Here - guests at the Tregenna Castle in St Ives have been targeted.

Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Police are appealing for the public’s help to identify a man wanted in connection with a series of frauds in the Devon and Cornwall area.
 
"Throughout April and May of this year the man is believed to have been involved in a series of thefts of credit cards from guests at hotels across the region, before going on to take money fraudulently with the stolen cards direct from bank accounts.
 
"Hotels where guests have been victims have included Tregenna Castle in Cornwall, The Ilsington Country House Hotel, Dartmoor and the Southgate Hotel, Exeter.
 
"Banks used to withdraw cash have included Nat West branches in Exeter and Oxford where a combined total of almost £30,000 has been stolen.
