Police are trying to identify two children who a man – believed to be drunk – showed card tricks to in Letchworth.

An appeal for information has been launched after a white man, approximately 60 years of age with grey hair and stubble, was seen speaking to a boy and girl in Spring Road at about 3.30pm on Sunday, April 10.

The man was wearing a dark coloured cap with a yellow peak, black jacket, red jumper and black trousers, and is believed to have been ‘intoxicated’.

Officers have stressed that the two children – aged between seven and 12, and who were on bicycles – are not in any kind of trouble, but are keen to identify them as part of an on-going investigation.

The boy is described as white, slim in build with a pale complexion and fair hair. The girl is described as white of a slim build with long light coloured hair past her shoulders.
