CCTV footage of a woman attacking a shop worker has been released by police.

The shopper is wanted in connection with common assault at Tesco Express in Wood Street, Walthamstow, on May 11 at around 3pm. 

She was asked to leave by staff as she was previously banned from using the store.

Unhappy with the request, she started arguing with the staff member by the store's entrance. 

The worker then pulled out his smartphone to take a picture of her.

The woman then lunged forward, grabbed the worker and pulled his tie before a man intervened and she walks away. 

Anyone with information is asked to call police in 101 quoting reference 4909448/15 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
