POLICE have released a photo of a motorboat outboard engine stolen in Manningtree.

The Honda 2.3 HP long shaft outboard motor was taken from Maltings Wharf between 6pm on June 28 and 1pm on July 1. Footprints left at the scene appear to show the crooks fled towards Riverside Avenue East.

Anyone who recognises the motor or has been offered it for sale should contact PC Chris Bird on 101 or Crimestoppers.
