Police hunting raiders who targeted a computer shop in Hove on Sunday (4 September) have recovered a car which they believe was used by the offenders.

Two men, their faces covered, entered the Solutions Inc store in Old Shoreham Road at about 4.25pm.

They grabbed two Apple Macbook computers from a display and damaged another in an unsuccessful attempt to pull it from its security device.

They escaped in a red Vauxhall Corsa which was later found abandoned in Moyne Close, Hangleton.
