£750 in cash was stolen during a fourth break-in within four months at an East Cambridgeshire shop that had a £525,000 refurbishment last year. 

Police were called to the suspected break-in at the Co-op in Cottenham on Sunday morning at 1.16am. 

On arrival, officers found entry had been forced and a self-service till had also been broken. 

This isn't the first time the store has been broken into: in April, ram raiders stole a cash machine, in June a shoplifter assaulted a member of staff and, in July, burglars stole a cash box.

The latest investigation is ongoing.
