Detectives in Lewisham have released CCTV footage of two men they would like to speak to after a convenience store in Bromley was burgled.

Between 23:45hrs on Tuesday, 18 October and 07:00hrs on Wednesday, 19 October, Premier convenience store in Bromley Road was broken into by thieves, who stole a large quantity of cigarettes, alcohol and cash. The total amount of goods stolen is estimated to be worth between £10,000 and £12,000.

The thieves are believed to have gained entry by forcing open the rear shutters and door.

Once inside they raided the cigarette counter, till and alcohol shelves. They then left via the rear of the shop.
