Police investigations continue after a break-in forced a city centre business to close its doors for the day. 

Patisserie Valerie in Norwich's Davey Place was targeted between the hours of 5pm on Wednesday, January 19 and 7.45am on Thursday, January 20. 

Police forensic services could be seen outside the posh coffee shop last Thursday morning as officers searched the closed premises. 

A spokeswoman for Norfolk Police said enquiries are continuing into the burglary and no arrests have been made.

The business fully reopened last Friday and has been able to trade as usual since. 

James Clarke of the City Bookshop - located next to Patisserie Valerie - said the business was not affected by the yobs last week. 

He recalls a window being smashed at the bookshop in the past but is confident the break-in next door was a one-off.

Mr Clarke said: "People do not really want to steal the books and we do not keep any money inside."
