POLICE are calling on the public's help following reports of a person 'trying door handles' at properties in Wrexham.

The appeal was released along with video footage by North Wales Police's Wrexham Rural Team on Friday.

A spokesman said: "Do you recognise this individual?

"Any information would be greatly appreciated - he thinks it is acceptable to lurk around Rhos, Ponciau and Johnstown trying door handles.

"We are very keen to have a chat before he finds an open one.

"Please ensure you leave a light on if going out and lock all doors and windows."

Anyone who has information can contact police on 101 or via the force's chat facility at https://www.north-wales.police.uk/ with the reference Y154652.
