Bottles of champagne valued at around £500 were stolen from a Beckenham restaurant last week during a burglary.

It is believed 24 bottles of Laurent Perrier, Moet, Bollinger and Dom Perignon were stolen overnight from L’Aragosta, in Eden Park Avenue, between February 27 and 28.

The business cash box and laptop were also stolen, though they were later recovered by police in an alleyway close to Dunbar Avenue.

Owner Peppe Marmo said: “They probably took about £500 worth of champagne, but it may have been more.

“The door frame going into the shop was broken and they made a mess of our business papers. I think they were looking for money, but we don’t keep any in the restaurant over night.”

Anyone with any information on the burglarly should contact Bromley police on 020 8284 8859, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
