A VEGAN restaurant which opened just six weeks ago has already been targeted by criminals.

A door at the front of Vegivores, in Caversham, appears to have been smashed in by vandals last week (December 6).

Pictures on Vegivores' Instagram account show the damage after owners say two people attempted to break into the restaurant.

Thames Valley Police confirmed at about 12.30am there was an attempted break in at the business on St Martin's Precinct.

Officers said nothing was stolen as the offenders didn't manage to get inside.

However, they did break the glass of one of the doors.

The force said: "We are appealing for anyone with information to come forward calling 101 quoting reference 43190380684."
