Burglars have broken into a charity shop in Plymouth causing £2,000 damage and stealing £500 from a safe.

St Luke's Hospice shop at Sugar Mill on Billacombe Road was raided early on Sunday morning said police.

Those responsible got into the shop by breaking a rear window.

The charity's area Manager John Saunders said: "We are well supported by the people of Plymouth so to break a window and target us is heartbreaking."

The charity shop is still open for business, seven days a week.
