Salon owner Angela Emson has opened her salon and plans to continue trading as normal this morning.

She hopes a cash tin from her shop found dumped in nearby woodland will contain forensic evidence to help detectives crack the case.

“They made a mess by busting open the back door but we are open as normal,” said Angela.

“We have been trading for six years so this won’t stop us.

“Forensics officers are coming later so we hope they find what they need.”

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
