Welwyn Garden City’s John Lewis was burgled in the early hours of this morning (Wednesday) for the second time in five days.

A police spokesman said officers were called to today’s break-in at 3.46am after an alarm at the town centre store had been tripped.

Upon arrival the glass entrance in Wigmores North had been smashed and two large boxes, thought to have been coffee machines, were taken, but no-one was found in the store.

It follows a separate burglary at around 3.10am on Saturday, January 6, when the same entrance was targeted and five Dyson vacuum cleaners were stolen.

The spokesman confirmed officers are linking the two raids and urged anyone with information on either to contact police via non-emergency number 101.

Updates to follow.
