There has been an appeal for information following a robbery at a Derry barber shop last night.
Bareknuckle Barbershop in Northside Shopping Centre was ransacked during a break which was captured on CCTV (below).
Money was stolen from the shop and the shop was ransacked and the doors were broken.
The owners have asked anyone with any information to come forward.
There was also a break in at the chemists in the centre.
Sinn Féin Councilllor Caoimhe McKnight has condemned an overnight break-in at the Northside Shopping centre during which a number of premises were targeted and damage was caused.
Councillor McKnight said “It’s absolutely disgraceful that these premises were targeted in this way.
They are providing jobs and services for local people.
Many small businesses are working on tight margins and the last thing they need is any disruption or added costs or losses caused by this break in.
I would urge anyone with information to contact the police straight away."
SDLP Councillor Brian Tierney has said that those behind the break-in have no regard for the impact that their actions are having on vital services within the local community.
He said: “The thieves broke in through the barbershop in the early hours of the morning, went through the shopping centre and made off with a number of items.
“However, it appears that one visit was not enough for them, as not long after they left, they came back made off with more goods.
“Those behind this crime have given no consideration to the effect their actions have had on local businesses and vital services within this community, such as the chemist within the centre which was targeted.
“I am appealing for anyone who may have seen anything untoward around the shopping centre last night to come forward to the police as soon as possible.”
