Police are appealing for help to trace a man they would like to speak to in connection with a series of burglaries across Lancashire and Cheshire. 
Mark Fitton, 44, from Oldham, is wanted in connection with a number of burglaries which took place throughout Lancashire and Cheshire between October 2013 and February 2014. 
He is described as white, 5ft 7in tall, stocky build with short blonde/light brown hair with tattoos of a flower and the name “Lewis” on his right arm and two dice tattooed on his left arm.
