Police in Kent today issued a photograph of the man they are seeking in connection with the illegal import of fish flans from Belgium.
The man, who is is believed to have started his journey from the town of Gits in Belgium, fled the scene when stopped by officers at the M20 services near Maidstone.
The vehicle being driven by the man attracted the attention of the dilligent officers on duty due to the “overwhelming fish odour emanating from the van”, police sources commented.
Upon inspection, the fish flans from Flanders were found to be six months past their sell-by date.
DO YOU KNOW THIS MAN?
Customs officials are also understood to want to speak to the man, who is believed to go by the name of ‘Kenny,’ about a separate, ongoing investigation into a pastry scam in Flanders that has left hundreds of customers out of pocket.
He is described as being 5’8” tall, with “slightly out of control brown curly hair”, and was last seen fleeing in a westerly direction wearing a red and yellow cycling cap.
The fugitive is not thought to be dangerous, but police advise that he is not to be approached unless you have a very strong stomach.
