The fire-damaged Maenporth Beach Cafe was targeted by burglars just weeks after a blaze destroyed the building's roof.

Drinks, body boards, inflatables, crab lines and other beach accessories were stolen after the building was broken into.

Co-owner Leanne Wright posted on Facebook saying that the incident was "another kick in the teeth".

The popular cafe went up in smoke on the morning of May 28, just weeks after Leanne and son James took over ownership.

It burned for several hours before firefighters were able to extinguish the flames and the building's roof was left completely gutted.

Leanne said in the Facebook post: "Please be aware any of my local friends, today whilst checking on Maenporth Cafe we noticed we have had a break in.

"Drinks (cans & bottles), beach goods, Aqua shoes, Bodyboards, Skimmer Boards, Inflatables, Crab Lines have been stolen.

"All these goods are smoke damaged and possibly Bamboo Cups and Water Bottles (H2O Logo) may also be among stolen items. They are all fire damaged goods.

"Thank you to the low life/lifes that did this, another kick in the teeth for us. If anyone hears of anything please let us know as police have been informed."

A spokesperson from Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Police are aware of reports of a burglary at Maenporth Beach Café which was reported to have happened between 3pm on Saturday June 8 and 12pm on Tuesday June 11.

“It was reported that entry was forced and a number of items were taken from within.
