POLICE have released this CCTV image of a man they want to speak to following two bank robberies in Solihull.

A man entered Natwest on High Street in Knowle at 3pm on Friday, June 8 and showed the cashier an empty holdall.

But he fled after a panic alarm was pressed.

Then, just over an hour later at 3.15pm, it is believed the same man went into Nationwide on Stratford Road in Shirley.

The man made threats, saying he had a gun, and the cashier handed over cash.

The man is black, between 5ft 6 and 5ft 10 and of slim build. He was aged around 30 and wore a dark coloured beanie hat and high visibility jacket with the hood up.

Anyone with information can contact Solihull Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
