Staff at Chaos City in Heritage Close arrived at work to find a concrete slab, lots of broken glass and many missing figurines.

Manager Luke Ridge said: “We are still open. We are not going to let a few individuals stop us doing what we do best.”

Staff explained that they are still figuring out the actual value of the stolen figures. There was also a children’s hospital charity collection box that was taken.

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