The CCTV footage shows a man carrying a torch wearing a hooded top, gloves, backpack and trainers. He is covering his face with his hand as he enters the shop.

A burglary was also reported at the neighbouring Sunnyside Cafe.

Vapour Trails store manager, Daniel Jenkinson, is offering a £300 reward for information which leads to an arrest and a conviction.

Mr Jenkinson, who only moved into the shop in the past three months hopes someone may recognise the person shown in the CCTV footage.

He said, “He is pretty hooded-up but maybe someone will recognise his posture or clothes.”

A silver Dell laptop worth £1,500 and around £80 of cash from the till has been reported as stolen.

The till at a neighbouring Sunnyside Cafe was also emptied.

A spokesman for Sussex police said, “Police were called to the Sunnyside Cafe in High Street, Seaford just after 6.30am on Wednesday August 12 to reports of a burglary.
