Burnham-On-Sea businessman offers cash reward to capture vandals

The furious owner of a Burnham-On-Sea shop has offered a financial reward to try and catch the vandals who attacked his business for the fifteenth time in as many years on Sunday (January 25th).

Mark Woods, owner of Watermark Financial Solutions at 62 The High Street, faces a repair bill of several hundred pounds following the early morning attack.

As pictured here, the door of the shop was smashed overnight, much to Mr Wood's dismay.

"We're offering a £50 reward for information that leads to the conviction of these mindless vandals - I will definitely being pressing charges," he told on Sunday.

"Repairing and cleaning this up is another expense that we could do without. However, it won't stop us doing a great job - we won't be breaten."

He said CCTV coverage in the town needs to be tightened up at the northern end of the High Street. "CCTV coverage appears to be useless for this to keep happening and no-one being caught. The police and local councils need to have a re-think about it."

"It is a sad indictment of the state of our town today that this keeps happening." has covered the attacks several times in recent years - mostly recently here.
