POLICE are appealing to people who may recognise a man suspected of causing damage to a communal doorway in Brentwood.

CCTV images released show a man at the doorway to a block of flats in New Road, at around 1am on Saturday, April 12.

The man had pressed the buzzer to get in but when no-one gave him access he began to kick the door and caused it to shatter before walking off. The estimated cost of damage is £500.

Anyone who thinks they know who the man is or has any other information is asked to call PC Catherine Hunt at Brentwood Police Station on 101, or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
