A suspected shoplifter at Tesco in Huntingdon escaped police officers - but left his expensive skateboard behind.

The man, wearing a camouflage jacket and a pale BB cap, was carrying a skateboard but made off on foot just after 6.30pm last night (March 26).

He has not yet been traced – but did leave his skateboard at the store on Abbots Ripton Road.

The board was of the Penny brand range and which a funky pop art design worth up to £100.
