break into Burnham-On-Sea skating rink, leaving damage
Thieves have broken into Burnham-On-Sea's Christmas skating rink
overnight and left a trail of damage.
The intruders entered the rink's large canvas tent in the car park
next to Burnham's Marine Drive during the early hours of Thursday
"They have stolen a number of skating boots, damaged several
Christmas trees and also ripped up part of the plastic surface,"
said Kathy Jones from organising group BEST (Burnham Events Social
She told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It's hugely disappointing that
someone would do this after all the hard work put in by our volunteers
to make it ready in time for our opening."
"The BEST committee is offering a reward for any information
that results in a conviction."
She added that the skating will still be opening on Friday as planned,
with an opening ceremony on Saturday morning.
Anyone with information about the incident should contact Burnham
Police on 101.
