Police are searching for three hooded men in connection with a Melbourn shop burglary in the early hours of this morning.

Officers were called at about 1.40am to the Co-op in the High Street after three men are believed to have stolen an unknown quantity of cigarettes and tobacco before leaving in an Audi – possibly an A3 Sportback.

One man is thought to have been wearing a red hooded top, and another is believed to have been wearing a light blue hooded top.

The third man is believed to have been wearing a dark hooded top.

Investigations are ongoing and officers urge anyone with information to call 101.

It follows a similar burglary which took place in Premier Stores in the High Street in August.
