German detectives are hunting thieves who broke into a car showroom and stole only the coffee machine.

Dozens of brand new Citroen cars were parked in the showroom in Bonn and the keys were on the wall.

But the thieves ignored all the new motors, and instead unplugged and made off with the coffee machine.

Bonn police spokesman Robert Scholten said: "The coffee machine was a pretty good one but not worth as much as a new car.

"Staff only discovered the theft when they went to make a drink in the kitchen and realised the machine was missing."
