Suffolk Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to after an NHS employee was verbally abused in Beccles.
The incident occurred between 11:30 and 11:40 hours on Saturday 19 June at Tesco in George Westwood Way.
The victim – a woman aged in her 30s – was at a checkout paying for some items when a man used offensive language towards her.
