These pictures capture the shocking aftermath of a smash and grab raid on popular Grafton Street fashion store Canada Goose.

The high-end outlet that sells designer clothes including jackets that can cost well over €1,000 apiece was apparently targeted by thieves in the early hours of this morning.

The front door of the shop was smashed open with one eye witness saying it looked like it had been "pulled off the hinges."

Another eye witness who was one of the first people on the scene watched as Dublin City workers swept up the remains of the door as shop workers watched on.

"The jackets in the shop are normally in place with a wire lock. I recently got one for my partner and some retail well over €1,000 per jacket,” he said.

"There was a Dublin City road sweeper unit there cleaning up the glass that was shattered all over the street,” he added.

Gardaí are hunting the culprits behind the smash and grab but a full probe has been launched, they said.
