A burglar was captured on CCTV using bolt cutters to force his way into Jonathan Trumbull in Norwich before clambering in and swiping a number of items of designer clothing from the shelves before putting them into a bag and fleeing into the night.

The raider was also caught on camera by passers-by as he ran off following the burglary which happened at the St Stephens Street store, sometime between 2.30am and 6.45am, on February 19 this year.

The burglary, which is thought cost around £6,000 in losses and damage, followed an earlier raid on January 29.

An investigation was launched but a police spokesman said it has now been closed.

Speaking in February, David Kingsley, store owner, said he was “very disillusioned” with it all following the raids.
