Police have released an appeal for witnesses after Little Florist in Bedford Street was broken into and cash stolen from the till at 4am on Tuesday.

Police said a charity box was also emptied.

Manager Anita Prior said: “We only realised when we saw the mess round the back of the till.

“There was about £200 in there.

“It is the first time it has happened to us but several businesses in the area have been targeted. It has a big impact on small businesses, like us.

“It is very unsettling to know someone has broken in and gone through your stuff. It’s not nice and has been a bit of a shock.”

In a post on social media, Arun Police wrote: “If you have any information that may assist with our enquiries, please call 101 and quote serial 0435 of 10/12.”
