Apology note sent to nightclub boss same day as burglary

An apology note was sent to the boss of a nightclub in Cleethorpes after thieves raided it.


The break-in happened on Sunday, November 6, when a group of six men were walking past the Barcelona Club in Grant Street, at around 6.10am.

Two men then kicked open the door, and five people went inside and stole alcahol from behind the bar after searching the premises.

The group fled in the directionof the Swashbuckle pub.

"Officers are keen to speak to anyone who can identify the men in the CCTV or witnesses who have yet to come forward."
