Another customer then pointed out a man leaving the toilets and the 22-year-old went to report the incident to security staff. The man was led away but then managed to escape security by claiming he felt unwell and running away.

The police spokeswoman said officers are trying to trace the man, described as white, in his mid-20s to mid-30s. He is around 5ft 5ins, of slight build with short, straight brown hair.

He was wearing jeans, trainers and a beige-coloured t-shirt with a large red design on the front.
