Owner Mark Turnbull posted the CCTV footage on the shop’s Facebook page at the weekend.

He said: “It took us a while to work out why we were short of buns. We didn’t think that they had been pinched, but then we found the CCTV footage of somebody helping themselves to them.

“I put the footage on Facebook to see if we could name and shame the person who was responsible. He stole £30 of wrapped buns – there was not a crumb left!

“The bread delivery had arrived and was in the doorway, wrapped and undercover. The person has come along that little bit earlier than us and has taken the buns.

“We have addressed the situation now and the bread buns will be locked away, so it won’t be an issue in the future.”
