Owner of LayWawa’s Café Sarah Howell said: “The windows of the cafe and Grangetown florist were smashed and tills were stolen, it came as a surprise when we arrived to open up for the day on Friday.

"It’s a shame as we were hoping for a busy day as it was the Jubilee weekend, but everything was just covered in glass.”

A Northumbria Police spokesperson said: “Enquiries into both reports are ongoing and anyone with information can contact police via the ‘Tell Us Something’ page of our website or by calling 101 quoting references NP-20220603-0109 and NP-20220603-0113.”
