British Transport Police detectives are calling for the public’s help following a burglary of £120-worth of snacks from a coffee shop at Ely station.

The break-in happened at the LA Golden Bean kiosk at around 2am on Sunday June 14.

Det Con David Bishop said: “Someone entered the station and forced the shutters on the locked kiosk.

“They stole around £120 worth of snacks before leaving the station.”

The owners discovered the break-in when they arrived to open up several hours later.

As well as the stolen items the kiosk counter and shutters were damaged.

DC Bishop said: “Small businesses like this one provide important services to passengers and it is sad to see them targeted by criminals.
