Despite the presence of a CCTV camera overlooking the entrance to the shop, it appears the car was driven over the pavement and into the automatic sliding door of the shop.

The door of the has been forced inwards by the impact of a vehicle and had been propped up on a tower of shopping baskets. It is unclear whether this was done deliberately or occurred when the door was hit by the vehicle.

A vodka bottle was dropped outside the store, presumably by the fleeing thieves.
