Police issue appeal after charity boxes stolen from Burnham shop

Police have issued an appeal for witnesses after a burglary at a Burnham-On-Sea shop in which charity boxes and cash were stolen.

Thieves gained access to Seafoods in the High Street this week and stole a cash box and two charity collection boxes full of coins.

Burnham Police say a door was forced and a window smashed to gain acces to the fishmonger.

"Two charity boxes for Weston Hospice and the Fishermen's Mission were taken - both of which were full of coins and ready to be collected. It is so low that someone could do this," the shop's Ryan Mount told

Police have appealed for any witnesses who saw any suspicous activity between last Saturday and Monday morning to get in touch via the non-emergency number 101 or anonymously via the Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
