BURGLARS have smashed the front door of a chip shop in Kidderminster.

Captain Cod's Fish Bar in Comberton Hill was broken into overnight on Wednesday (May 27).

The burglars forced entry into the chip shop by smashing a glass panel in the front door of the premises.

Police say the offenders then searched the shop for food and stole a tablet device from inside the property, before making their escape.

Officers are now appealing for witnesses to come forward.

A spokesman for West Mercia Police said: "Persons unknown have forced entry into Captain Cod in Comberton Hill, Kidderminster by smashing a glass panel in the front door.

"Persons unknown have then looked around for food and also stolen a tablet device before making their escape.

"This occurred overnight between May 27 and May 28.
