A man and woman from Weston-super-Mare have been arrested and bailed after a WH Smith store in Somerset was burgled at the weekend.

Police released CCTV footage earlier this week after a burglary at the store in Street on Saturday.

The incident involved a black Ford Focus estate car, which is said to have been damaged after it was used to smash into the Street store in High Street at around 10.17pm. A man went inside the store and stole a cash box, before getting back into the car and driving off.

Since then, a 33-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman have been arrested on suspicion of burglary and are currently on police bail until March 6.
