He was wearing a dark woolly hat with ‘76 Original’ in a turquoise colour on the front and a turquoise strip around a white rim, black sunglasses, a black waterproof hip-length jacket which was covering his mouth, dark jeans, black shoes and black gloves. His coat was pulled up over his mouth. It is believed he was in possession of a bladed weapon and was carrying a black bag with a strap over his shoulder.
