It took place last Friday (March 1) in the afternoon.

The wanted man is white with dark hair and was seen wearing dark clothing.

A Lancashire Police spokesman said: "We know thefts like this really affect young people and we are determined to do whatever we can to investigate and crack down on them.

"We'd also urge people to invest in a D shaped shackle lock as they are much harder to cut through."
