Thieves broke into Matlock Bath’s Restoration Cafe in the early hours of this morning in an attempt to break into a cash point which is housed in its wall.

Derbyshire Fire Service were called out to the Grand Pavilion, South Parade, at about 5am today, responding to a fire alarm.

They discovered a smashed rear window on the lower ground floor and plaster board had been damaged in the interior of the cafe.

A Derbyshire Police spokesman said it was probable the offenders were targeting the cash machine.

A spokesman for the cafe’s trustees said they were shocked and upset but determined to re-open tomorrow.
