Police are investigating the case of a Berkshire café that was forced to close after cockroaches were posted through its letterbox earlier this month.
Having only opened the Teapot Tea Shop in Cookham a few days before the incident on 15 August, co-owner Diane Bryant said the discovery of the hissing insects had left her "shocked and startled", according to the BBC.
Local police have said they are treating it as a harassment case, and asking anyone with information to come forward.
The Teapot Tea Shop in Cookham was opened by Bryant and co-owner Magda Wencel, and serves tea, coffee, pastries and cakes. Although forced to close after the event, it resumed trading the next day after being deemed safe by health officials.
Cockroaches are persistent insects, as their relatively large size and ability to climb on almost any surface makes them difficult to get rid of. Their presence can easily shut down a catering establishment: only last week a Leeds restaurant was fined £750 and ordered to pay £1,250 in costs after a customer found a cockroach in their pizza.
