Owner Marina Desclavis said: “It is not the first time this has happened. The same thing happened seven years ago.

It is very upsetting that they took our stock.”

Herts police confirmed they got a call at 7.15am reporting a burglary at a comic shop in St Albans. They are still dealing with the matter. Anyone with information should contact police on 101, quoting ISR 103 of May 2.
