An investigation is under way after a break-in at a popular bar in Stevenston.

The Cross Keys bar in Stevenston was targetted in the early hours of Saturday, May 20.

Footage shared on social media appears to show the alleged break-in, which was reported to police that same morning.

It shows a figure, who covered their face, approach the front of the popular venue shortly after 3am. They appear to check that no one is inside before attempting to break the front window.

They succeed after a few attempts, crawl inside through the broken window, then attempt and succeed at opening the pub's till - which was empty at the time.

Those from the pub were left sickened by the incident, particulary due to the damage caused.

They said that the cost of this was "a lot more" than what the alleged crook managed to take away from the bar.

Police Scotland have confirmed they are investigating the reports, and are looking for anyone with information to come forward.

A force spokesperson said: "Around 6.10am on Saturday, May 20, police received a report of a break-in in Fullarton Place, Stevenston. 

"Enquiries are ongoing. Anyone with information should contact 101 with reference 0964 of May 20."
