Burnham-On-Sea jewellery shop owner's anger over vandalism

A jewellery shop in Burnham town centre suffered hundreds of pounds worth of damage when a vandal threw a brick through its window earlier today (Monday 1st March).

Burnham-On-Sea police were called to fashion accessories shop Spangles at 10a The High Street at 12.20am after a nearby resident reported seeing a youth smash the window and then run away.

Store owner Penny Ricketts told “The shop has been left an absolute tip. I'm so cross this has happened.”

“Nothing appears to have been stolen – it was just a pointless attack. One brick was thrown through the window, leaving glass everywhere. It’s not a great way to start the week.”

She added that a local resident heard a loud bang at 12.20am and a person was seen running away shortly afterwards along a side street.

Anyone with information should contact police via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
