heard shouts and screams and looked outside to see eight to nine
teenagers running around, pulling up the flowers and smashing
ran off along Berrow Road in the direction of Burnham. I jumped
into my car and approached the group, but they denied any involvement.
I called the police, who are now looking into the whole matter."

damage this garden - it's brainless. It's particularly annoying
as the Burnham In Bloom judges are due to assess us and other
local businesses in the town over the next few days."
