New break-in at Highbridge Childrens Centre angers staff and parents

Mean thieves broke into Highbridge Childrens Centre during the early hours of Thursday morning (March 26th) and stole a laptop computer worth hundreds of pounds.

A cleaner found the centre in Coronation Road had been struck for a third time in as many months when she discovered a window had been smashed to gain access.

Julian Plested, the centre's manager, told "On this occasion, a nursery window was broken with a concrete block to gain entry. It left a lot of mess and caused disruption because we had to move the children out while the window was boarded up. It's really sad that this keeps happening."

"The parents and staff are fed up - it's the third act of crime against the centre in just a few months. We just don't understand why someone would have a grudge against young children or a valuable community service like this." reported last November how the centre had been struck by vandals, as pictured, causing hundreds of pounds of damage. It is not yet clear how much this week's break-in will cost the centre.
