Vandals cause damage at Burnham-On-Sea internet cafe

Another shop in Burnham-On-Sea's town centre is this week counting the cost of crime after being struck by vandals.

The Link internet cafe in Cross Street had a window smashed, leaving its angry owner to pick up the repair bill.

It comes just weeks after the town's Chamber of Trade urged police to step up patrols in the town centre earlier this year to combat vandalism against businesses.

Shop owner Martin Hart, pictured, told "It was pointless vandalism that has cost us over £60 to repair. It is really annoying when this happens."

Wednesday's incident follows a spate of crime in Burnham town centre during recent months.

A card shop suffered a break-in in February, there was an attempted robbery in January, and vandals also attacked a finance firm in late January.
