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 Burnham-On-Sea.com.

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.
