It is thirsty work being a burglar apparently - so this one helps himself to a drink during a break-in at a milkshake shop.

CCTV caught the man slurping down a beverage as he took a break from stealing cash and a television in a branch of Shaketastic in north London.

Footage of the raid in High Road, Finchley, in the early hours of June 18 has been released by the Metropolitan Police.

A spokesman said: "The door's shutters had been broken into, the padlock had been smashed and the front door damaged. A television was stolen and money taken from the safe."

The suspect is described as white and clean-shaven, with short hair. He was wearing a light coloured T-shirt, black trousers and a dark-hooded anorak.
