Burnham's crime-hit Boots chemist store to install shutters this week

Burnham-On-Sea's Boots chemist store plans to install new security shutters this month after a spate of burglaries.

The store in Burnham's High Street has suffered four burglaries since the beginning of April, with thousands of pounds of stock stolen.

Bosses have given the go-ahead for metal shutters to be installed to protect the store's glass doors from further overnight break-ins.

"We've reluctantly decided to install the shutters - we really didn't want to do this, not just for the cost but also the appearance of the store," Chris Donkin, the store's assistant manager, told

The shutters are due to be installed shortly following night-time burglaries on Saturday May 27th, Sunday April 16th, Thursday April 13th, and Monday April 3rd.
