Second Burnham-On-Sea cafe hit by burglars as police issue appeal

Police have appealed for witnesses after a late night break-in at a Burnham-On-Sea cafe - the second in the town in the space of a month.

Burglars forced their way into Tickle Your Taste Buds on the town's High Street last Saturday before searching the premises for cash.

The incident comes just a month after a break-in at the Bay View Cafe on Burnham seafront, first reported here, when money was stolen.

Len Cameron, owner of Tickle Your Taste Buds, told "The burglars appear to have used a crow bar to force open our door and gain entry to the premises and search the shop for cash."

"They opened the till, but because we never leave money in the shop overnight they didn't find any cash at all."

He added: "It was a huge shock to come here on Sunday morning and find the door wide open."

Burnham Police have not ruled out a link between the two incidents and have appealed to passers-by who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area of Tickle Your Taste Buds overnight from October 13th-14th to contact them via their non-emergency number 101 or through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
