An appeal has gone out to identify a man who is deemed to be acting in a strange manner in a mosque.

The incident happened at the Masjid E Saliheen on Fishergate Hill in Preston.

In the video a man can be seen walking around the prayer hall and then proceeds to lie down on the carpet before joining prayers.

As worshippers get up to pray he decides to line-up alongside others in the hall but as prayers continue he stands and gestures towards the back of the room.
