Officers investigating an attempted robbery at a Luton building society in June have issued CCTV of a man they would like to speak to.

At around 4.30pm on Friday, June 29, a man entered the Nationwide building society in George Street, Luton, and handed a note to staff stating he had a knife and would use it to harm customers if they did not hand over cash.

The man was chased by staff and ran off in the direction of Upper George Street.
