He said: "They had kicked the front door in, smashed the lock on the second door and then kicked the door in at the back to what leads to the toilet.

He said the business was able to open as normal today, but was only able to accept cash due to the card machine being stolen.

He added: "Someone has donated us a front door - I'm so grateful for that."

The owner of Cuticulture posted on Facebook about the 'terrible news'.

She said: "We think it happened early hours of the morning and there was a suspect white van parked on Wood Road.
