CCTV has been released after masked intruders armed with a crowbar raided a bar owned by a former Emmerdale star in Gatley.

The burglars left with an empty safe after breaking into The Spinn on Gatley Road in the early hours of Monday morning.

The trio used tools to grind through the shutters at the back of the café and bar, before prising the door open with a crowbar.

The break-in, at the venue on Gatley Road, happened at around 12.20am on Monday morning (January 27).

Footage from the incident shows the raiders, who all covered their faces, searching through the premises.

They were on site for around 90 seconds.

The Spinn is co-owned by former Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas and his business partner Scott Graham.

Scott said: "It's such a shame. It's not nice. You put in all this hard work. We are both very hands on. They caused a bit of damage, they broke a few keg stands. They got the safe, but it was empty. We don't leave money on the site.

"We have secured the site. We have a big night on this Saturday, Saints and Spinners. It's still going ahead.

"The show must go on, we won't be beaten. At least no one was injured or hurt."

A spokesman for GMP said: "I can confirm we were called shortly before 12.25pm on Monday, January 27.

"Police were called to reports of a burglary that had occurred at around 12.20am on Monday, January 27."

The spokesman did not confirm whether any arrests have been made.
