The offender is believed to have broken the window with a brick to gain access to the property.

The man appears around the 00.54 mark in the top right hand corner of the video. Viewers should note the time is an hour ahead due to the camera being on summer time.

Following the incident owners Dave and Belinda branded the alleged thief the ‘lowest of the low’.

However, customers of the fish and chip shop have since reached deep after hearing what has happened and made more donations to the charity than was in the tin that was stolen.

The pair wrote on the business’ Facebook wall: “We are overwhelmed by the generosity our customers have shown and are so pleased to tell you that we have more than raised the amount stolen at the weekend for the Lincolnshire Air Ambulance. We will continue to raise money for this amazing cause. Thank you all, Dave and Belinda xxxxxxx”
