Sussex Barrister has had its window smashed

An independent coffee shop in Barnham has been broken into by heartless thieves who stole the till and a charity pot.

The glass door of Sussex Barista, The Square, was smashed overnight, police confirmed.

Owner John Barber-Bacon said he had reported it to police and hopes CCTV outside the Co-Op next-door will have captured the burglar/s.

He said: “There wasn’t much money in the till but the charity pot for the foodbank was stolen, who does that?

“I’ll need a new till and new window but for me the main damage is a day’s trading.”

John said he hopes to reopen tomorrow.

Police confirmed officers were called in the early hours of this morning and asked anyone who may have information to call 101 quoting serial 121 of 11/10.
