Burglars forced a lock to break in to the firm on Dunlop Street, close to South Yorkshire Police's HQ in Attercliffe, at some time between 9pm on Sunday night and 7am yesterday morning.

Police said a coffee machine was stolen and 'the taps were then turned on to flood the premises'.

In the early hours of this morning, at around 12.35am, car keys were taken by thieves who partially removed a kitchen window from a property at Ribston Court in Darnall.
