Attempted break-in at Highbridge shop prompts police appeal

Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward after an attempted break-in at a shop in the centre of Highbridge early on Monday morning (April 6th).

Officers were called to the One Stop shop in Market Street at 12.15am after a window was smashed at the front of the property, as pictured here.

But police believe the raiders were disturbed and they made off without stealing any of the shop's produce.

Police spokesman Wayne Baker told "There was an attempted break-in at a shop in Market Street overnight."

"Two people were trying to break in at around 12.15am and caused some damage to a door. It's thought they ran away from the scene."

He added: "Anyone who saw anything suspicious at about this time should contact Burnham-On-Sea police on 0845 456 7000 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
