THIEVES smashed through the door and ransacked a mobile phone shop in Sedgley.

Shocking CCTV footage from Mobile Arena on the High Street shows two men smashing their way through the bottom half of the glass door.

The pair, one holding a large bag, then use a hammer to break into the phone counter before filling the bag with goods.

They then escape out of the broken door.

Shop owner Kashav Kashav said the incident happened during the early hours of Friday morning (January 24) and he has now released the CCTV in a bid to find those responsible.

He said: "It's terrible. They broke the main shutter, the main window and a smaller window.

"They stole a lot of second hand phones."

He added that this is the first break-in the shop has suffered during its six years in the town.

The damage to Mobile Arena has now been repaired with new shutters and improved security and it is now back to business as usual at the shop, Mr Kashav said.

The 31-year-old has been supported by Mohammed Sagir who owns a phone shop in Dudley town centre which was hit by a break-in last year.

Mr Sagir, who is also an ambassador for Dudley town centre business, said the incident demonstrates how more security and CCTV is needed in Sedgley to tackle crime.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Police confirmed the incident is being investigated.
