A female Irish teenager is being sought by police in Lancashire after she slapped a 52-year-old supermarket worker with a fish.

The attack, which is believed to have been filmed on a mobile phone, took place after the young girl asked the employee about the produce.

Without warning, the teenager picked up a fish, hit the employee across the face and ran out of the shop.

The incident took place at around 3pm on Tuesday 4th February.

Local police described the girl as Irish and aged between 15 and 18 with blonde, shoulder-length, untidy hair.

She was wearing dark jeans and a blue coat with white cuffs, white down the front and a red collar with ‘I love PB’ on the left breast pocket.

A man, who Police believe recorded the attack, is described as around the same age, 5ft8 tall and was wearing a dark coat and dark grey trousers and boots at the time.

Local policeman Graham Hartley described the attack as "completely unacceptable".

“This behaviour is completely unacceptable and I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this incident or recognises either the man or the woman pictured in the CCTV images to come forward and contact me.”
