Detectives are appealing for information after a teenager was robbed of cash during an incident in Burnham-On-Sea at the weekend.

The 18-year-old man was in Steart Drive on his way home from a night out during the early hours of Sunday morning (August 14th).

"Six men then approached him and robbed him of his wallet, which contained a quantity of cash and also van keys," police spokesman Wayne Baker told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
