CASH was stolen from a Malton hair salon during a break-in which left the door smashed in two and glass strewn across the floor.

The damage and theft happened at Anna Green’s newly-rebranded hair and beauty salon at 50 Castlegate.

Anna said she was called by police at 11.45pm last week on Wednesday and arrived to find the devastation and missing money.

She said all her equipment had been left so she could still work and keep the salon open.

“They’ve literally just gone for cash so that’s obviously what they wanted - quick and easy just to grab and go,” she said.

"It’s a disgrace.

"All us hard-working honest people who do our best and this is the result.

“Thank you to the North Yorkshire Police who were very fast to respond and deal with the situation and help me sort it out best they could.”

Anyone with further information should phone police on 101 quoting reference number 12180146983.
