At just before 5.50am police received a call from a witness who had seen three unidentified people, wearing hooded tops, scarves and gloves, running from the Superdrug store.

The group were seen to run along the High Street carrying a holdall bag, then down St Mary’s Street.

Police were at the shop within five minutes and it was quickly established that a burglary had taken place.
