A spokesman added: “Police arrived at the scene three minutes later, to find the glass window at the front of the store smashed and a number of iPhones, Samsung phones and Huawei phones stolen.

“Three men were seen on CCTV to approach the store with a crowbar, a large wooden construction mallet and a large builder’s sack.”

The men were dressed in dark clothing and had face coverings on, he added.

The spokesman said: “It is thought they approached the store via a footpath from the direction of Memorial Gardens, and fled the scene in a black Audi A4.”

He urged anyone who witnessed the incident or who may have any further information to report it online or call 101 quoting serial 9 of 22/11.
