Burglars on bikes stole two cash registers and an unknown sum of money from a seafront restaurant in Hove yesterday (Thursday 30 May).
The break-in – at Marrocco’s in King’s Esplanade – happened at about 3.15am when two people forced their way in.
They caused damage estimated at £2,000 to the restaurant which often has long queues for its ice creams on hot sunny days.
