A group of men stole a slush puppy machine from a family-run fish and chip shop in Milton Keynes after driving into the shopfront in a 'ram raid' burglary. 

The incident happened at Moores Fish and Chip Shop in Newton Leys at around 1:40am on Saturday (June 8).

A dark Vauxhall Astra was driven repeatedly into the shopfront of the small family business, causing significant damage, before a number of men entered the building and seized a slush puppy machine.

While a police investigation is ongoing, a spokesperson for the chippie said business had returned to normal today (June 10) after a two-day closure over the weekend.

They also apologised on Facebook to neighbours and customers who might have been "disturbed or inconvenienced" by the burglary's "noise and disruption". 

Investigating officer DC Yvette Wray, who is based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “We would like to speak to anyone who has information, CCTV or door cam footage within the area at this time.

"If you have any information around this incident, please contact the Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 quoting reference 43240267735 or online.
