The men also stole four Hornby train sets from the shop on Wednesday 20th February at 11.15am.

The police have released a description of the two men, who are both white. The first was thought to be aged between 35 and 40, about 5ft 10ins to 6ft tall, slim build and short hair.

The police said that the second man was thought to be aged in his 50s or 60s, heavy build and with a limp. According to the police the pair entered the shop carrying a rucksack.

Each train set is valued at around £200 and anyone who is offered a Hornby train set for a significantly cheaper price should contact the police.

A Warwickshire Police spokeswoman said anyone who recognised the description of the men should call Stratford Safer Neighbourhood Team on 01789 444500.
