A burglary suspect’s image published by police has been ridiculed by Facebook users, with some likening him to Four Weddings and a Funeral actor John Hannah.

The e-fit was released by the Avon and Somerset force after the suspect stole a woman’s handbag during a break-in at a Bristol church.

He was also compared to Julian Clary, Nigel Farage, Michael Caine and The Thick Of It character Malcolm Tucker.

One wrote: “100% John Hannah.”

The thief broke into Tyndale Baptist Church, Whiteladies Road, on Tuesday while a slimming class was taking place.

Police said the burglar, who was wearing navy work overalls, is up to 6ft 3ins tall, aged 45 to 60, slightly built, with mousy brown hair which was curly at the sides.
