Police have released CCTV of a man with a 'distinctive limp' as part of their investigations.

Police have released CCTV footage of a man with a distinctive limp and a balaclava-style face covering at a petrol station as part of their investigations into housebreakings in Glasgow.

Detectives are investigating the incidents at several locations across the city and surrounding area between November 2023 and March 2024.

There is currently no evidence to confirm that all incidents are linked, however, there are similarities to each case and many resulted in valuable personal items being stolen.

The man is described as wearing a hat and face covering with a dark jumper and lighter coloured trousers.
