Knives, iPads and tills have been reported stolen during a break-in at a popular Jersey cafe.

The owners of Off The Rails and The Cabin at the Elephant Park in St Brelade say they were targeted by thieves in the early hours of Monday morning.

The owners also claim the 'horrific' incident appeared to be 'planned and organised' and are offering a £500 reward for any information provided that leads to arrests.

CCTV footage appears to show seven masked people entering both buildings, cutting links to cameras and switching off the power.

This resulted in the fridges and freezers defrosting, ruining 'huge amounts of food'.

The alleged culprits also scrawled graffiti on the walls, reading 'ARC WAS HERE'.

States of Jersey Police are investigating the incident.

The cafe owners are asking anyone with information about the incident to contact the police.

The cafe will remain closed for the next few days.
