Exclusive: Attempted ram raid at Highbridge Somerfield store

Police are investigating an attempted ram raid on a supermarket in Highbridge earlier this week.

Officers rushed to Somerfield, near Bank Street, in the early hours of Wednesday morning (April 29th) after a vehicle was driven at speed into the building.

Police spokesman Steve Game confirmed to Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Police were called to an incident at the store at 3.05am when an alarm was activated."

"Officers found a Range Rover had rammed a fence and also damaged the doors of the premises."

He added that nothing was understood to have been stolen from the store and the damaged vehicle was taken away later in the day for further investigation.

It is not the first time that there has been a ram raid at the store. Burnham-On-Sea.com was also first to report in December 2007 how thieves had struck at the supermarket.
