The Co-op store in Redbourn has been damaged during a burglary in the early hours of this morning.

Police were called to the High Street store at 12.30am and discovered “extensive damage” to the front of the store.

At the same time, two grey Toyota pick-up trucks were seen leaving the area – both drivers failed to stop when asked.

The vehicles eventually stopped in Hatfield, on a track near the A414 and A1000 junction, and the occupants of both trucks left the scene.

A police spokesman said: “Despite an extensive search of the area, including use of the police helicopter, they were not located and enquiries to trace them continue.

“The Toyotas have been recovered as part of the ongoing investigation.
