The manager of Bewitched Coffee realised the letters were missing yesterday

They have not reported the incident to the police and said: "It's one of those things, you can't do much about it. Even if you follow it up, it comes to a dead end."

She said the cafe's CCTV does not cover the outside of the premises.

Bex said other businesses in the area have previously been broken in to and had windows smashed.

Bex said: "We've had other things, like a break in, before. It was last year, they stole a few things but not much"

She said it was sad that these things happen to independent local businesses.

Bewiched is an independently owned coffee chain with 11 cafes across Northamptonshire.
