CCTV footage released by the Lazy Cat Cafe shows a charity box being taken.

The box – which was for the Lancashire Cat Rescue – is removed by a woman in the footage.

Dave Robb, who runs the cat cafe, posted a link to the video on Facebook.

He said in the post: “Warning to local businesses.

“These disgusting thieves are operating in the area and have been caught on CCTV stealing our charity donations box.”

The video shows two women enter the cat cafe, and while around the till area one of the women looks up at the CCTV camera before putting a black shawl over the charity box.

They then make their way from the cafe into Cannon Street.

Dave said they had now launched an online fundraising page to replace the donations made for the cat rescue centre.

Anyone with information can call Preston Police on 101 quoting reference LC-20190118.
