A SHORT rude man wearing nothing but a pair of mustard coloured shorts is being hunted by police in Alcester.

Police received a number of calls from the public saying a man was going door-to-door in Malt Mill Lane selling items from a bag.

When he was turned away he got "stroppy" and rude.

Police described the man as a white male, just 5ft tall, slim build, Liverpool accent, short hair slicked back, several teeth missing, not wearing a top, and mustard coloured shorts.

Anyone who thinks they may have seen someone matching that description is being urged to call police on 101 quoting 0297 23/07/2019.

The incident took place around 4.15pm on July 23.
