CASH has been stolen from a Malton hair salon during a break-in which left the door smashed in two and glass strewn across the floor.

The damage and theft happened at Anna Green's newly-rebranded hair and beauty salon at 50 Castlegate.

She said she was called by police at quarter to midnight and arrived to find the devastation and missing money.

She added that all her equipment has been left so she can still work and keep the salon open.

"They've literally just gone for cash so that's obviously what they wanted - quick and easy just to grab and go," she said.

"It’s a disgrace to all the hard-working honest people who do our best."

She added: "Thank you to the North Yorkshire Police who were very fast to respond and deal with the situation and help me sort it out best they could."
