Police in York have released images of a man and woman suspected of stealing Christmas presents believed to have fallen from a delivery vehicle.

Further investigations revealed the suspects had rummaged through the mail sack, opened the parcels and stolen some of the contents, police said.

Most of the stolen items were Christmas presents and included Paul Smith brown leather shoes and a Hugo Boss perfume gift set.
