Following the incident, a cordon was in place and police also recovered a Peugeot vehicle at the scene with a registration ending ZHE.

After the break-in the former bank was boarded up and secured. Despite this someone gained access to the building again sometime between 8pm on Sunday and 1.30am on Monday.

Once inside they stole two oxy-acetylene gas bottles.
