A thief who appears to be targeting university football teams is being sought by police.

The latest incident saw seven mobile phones taken from the University of Lincoln's changing room during a match at Fen Lane in North Hykeham last week.

Officers believe the suspect may also be following the Nottingham Trent University team, which had items stolen during games earlier in the season.

Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

CCTV images of the suspect, described as white, with greying hair and a dark coat, have been released from the incident in North Hykeham.

Police said the suspect had also been spotted on the University of Lincoln's campus in recent weeks.
