Chris Widdowfield, director of the cafe, confirmed it is still open for business.

He said: “We are open today up and running as usual this weekend, we have just had to slow down things a bit.

“The person who broke in didn’t steal anything but left a trail of blood and forensics have taken samples and police were on the scene quickly and are now investigating.

“Because the blood was left behind I’m hoping police will easily be able to find the person responsible.”

Nothing was stolen from the cafe and the business is open as usual with a fully stocked counter this weekend and into next week.
