Drones worth more than £100,000 have been stolen from a family-run business in Sussex backed on Dragons’ Den.

Chief executive Mark Boyt said his drone store had been targeted by professional thieves who stole its Boxing Day orders.

Sussex Police said the shop in Terminus Road, Chichester, was broken into overnight on Tuesday.

The store, set up six years ago, expanded in 2018 after it won backing from Peter Jones.
