The Mind shop has been targeted by thieves.

The raiders targeted the Mind mental health charity shop in Beckett Road earlier this week and made off with cash, identity badges and other promotional items.

A post on the shop's Facebook page said: "Sadly the Mind Charity Shop on Beckett Road has been broken into and someone has stolen collection tins, identity badges and promotional materials (watches).

"Please be aware that neither the shop or any Mind staff are carrying out any door/street collecting and if you are approached by anyone please either contact the police, ourselves or the Shop on Beckett Road.
