Police are appealing for witnesses after thousands of pounds of cigarettes were stolen from a shop in St Neots.

The offenders drove up to the front of Londis in Naseby Gardens at around 4.30am today (November 6) and used a crowbar to force their way into the store.

A spokesman from Cambridgeshire police said: “Once inside, the thieves forced open the cigarette cabinet and emptied the stock, believed to be worth around £4,000, into a black dustbin.”

The men were dressed in hooded tops, one with a light balaclava and the other with his faced covered.

“They drove off at speed in the direction of Whitehall Walk, St Neots.”
