A man has been caught on CCTV casually ripping a front gate off its hinges in Bury St Edmunds, in an act of criminal damage.

The incident happened at around 7.53pm in Cannon Street on Sunday, April 18.

A man walks up to the wooden front gate of a property, grabs the top and pulls it backwards so it snaps off the hinges.

He then backs out of the video and isn't seen again.

Suffolk police are asking anyone who recognises the man in the video to contact them, quoting crime number 37/19397/21.
