PC Christopher Morgan, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “The damage caused during this incident and the subsequent time and financial implications of this for the shopkeepers have had a huge impact. Businesses are at the heart of our communities so to have this happen to them is absolutely devastating.

“Officers are committed to their investigation and as part of our enquiries we are now appealing to the public for help in identifying the three men in the images. We believe people may recognise their clothing.
