The thefts took place in the early hours of Monday 10 August and the charity shop at the lifeboat station in Castle Hill was hit at about 02:00 BST.

The mariners' collection box in Castle Square was attacked and its lock was removed to get at the money inside.

Finally, the Denis Cafe was targeted. The stolen till was later found discarded and empty.

Officers said the people in the CCTV images might have information that could help the investigation.

PC Rob Garland said: "Our enquiries have been ongoing since the break-in was reported, and we are now appealing for help in contacting the people pictured.

"If you know who they are, or believe you might be pictured, please get in touch with us."
