Witnesses are being sought after a burglary at a Co-op in Longfield.

Police were called just after 11.25pm on Sunday to a report of a burglary at the Co-op on Station Road.

A number of cigarettes were reported to have been stolen in the break.

It is believed three offenders, all wearing hooded tops, left the scene in a silver VW Golf on Essex Road in the direction of Fawkham Road.

Investigating officer PC Hollie Brown said: "This appears to be a pre-planned burglary of a shop in which a number of packets of cigarettes were stolen and damage done to the shop front.

"I am appealing for witnesses to come forward to help with this investigation and specifically a woman who was seen walking past the shop just moments before the raid.

"That person might have some important information or description of the offenders or the vehicle it’s believed they left the scene in."

Anyone with information should call PC Brown on 01474 366072 quoting reference XY/38963/13.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
