THIEVES have stolen a 'significant' amount of cash from Wood Green Animal Shelter.

A man entered the restaurant with a child at about 4pm last Friday (June 3).

It is believed the pair then distracted the cashier who later found a significant amount of money missing from the till.

Police are appealing to anyone who may have information.

A police spokesman said: "Wood Green is a charitable organisation which relies on takings from its shop and restaurant, to steal from them is a particularly low act.

"We are keen to speak to anyone who has any information about this incident."

Anyone with information should call police on 0345 456 456 4 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
