Police are releasing an e-fit image of a man they want to speak to in connection with a burglary in Lyndhurst last week, where a teenage girl was tied up.

A 17-year-old girl had returned to her family home at around 12.30pm where she had disturbed an intruder. The man forced the girl to lie on a bed where he tied her hands and then left the property.
Once the man had left the girl was able to free herself and raise the alarm. The girl was shocked and disturbed by the incident but was otherwise unharmed.
