These two suspected burglars might be thinking 'on reflection' that they made a mistake.

This CCTV image captures them and their reflections outside the 'Ocean Spice' bar at White Rock, Hastings, just before 7am on Tuesday 16 July.

They are suspected of then breaking in and stealing bottles of alcohol valued at about £150, and a computer tablet. Other images show them inside the bar

And one of them has a very distinctive tattoo on his leg.

PC Jack Bowry said; "We think somebody is bound to recognise them. If you can help please contact us, either online or by calling us on 101, quoting serial 981 of 16/07."
