Police hunting a burglar who stole a Second World War veteran's life savings have released CCTV images of a man wanted in connection with the crime.
On Friday (May 29), detectives released two images of a man they want to speak to in connection with the offence.
Detective Constable Tim Costello, of Hillingdon Burglary Squad, said: "Although the victim is 92 he lives a fairly independent life and has spent much of the last few years saving money.
"This money was to leave to his children in the event of his death, as well as some for his bills and day-to-day living.
"To say he has been devastated by the burglary and the loss of his savings is an understatement.
"We are appealing for anyone who may recognise the man in the CCTV footage. The suspect is a white male; he was wearing a dark blue jumper with a white print on the front, black jogging bottoms and black shoes."
Members of the public were so horrified by what happened to Mr Lake that well-wishers from as far afield as New York clubbed together to raise more than £5,000, which was presented to the D Day veteran earlier this month.
Police said the crime was believed to have taken place between the hours of 9pm on April 23 and 1am the following morning, with the burglar thought to have gained entry via an open window.
Anyone with information is asked to call Hillingdon police on 020 8246 1583 or the non-emergency police number 101. Alternatively, to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
