POLICE are appealing for information after a shop worker was spat at by a customer.

The incident happened between 9.30am and 10am on Wednesday, December 15 2021, at a store on Glastonbury high street.

A man entered the shop and became verbally abusive when he was asked to wear a mask. He was asked to leave and then spat directly at a member of staff.

Because of this, the store was then closed for a deep clean.

Avon and Somerset Police has said the staff member was left 'shaken and distressed'.

They are appealing for information about the man pictured.

"Do you recognise this man?," a spokesperson for Avon and Somerset Police said.

"Officers would like to speak to him as part of their investigation into an incident in a shop in Glastonbury.

"He's described as white, in his 40s or 50s, wearing a jacket, grey baseball cap and blue trousers or jeans.
