Herts Police have launched an appeal for information following this morning’s break-in and burglary at the Saints’ base.

A member of the public was alerted to the break-in, which occurred between 3.15-3.38am, after hearing an alarm.

Photos show chunks of concrete missing from external steps where a fruit machine was thrown down.

The floor behind the bar is strewn with rubbish and broken glass, and a metal cellar door has been torn from its hinges.
