Police are appealing for witnesses after a car crashed into the wall of a seafront pub in Burnham-On-Sea at the weekend.

Officers were called to The Reed’s Arms on The Esplanade on Saturday evening (June 18th) where a vehicle had collided with the front wall next to its seafront seating area.

The collision left damage to the wall and outside seating area, as pictured. Luckily, Wetherspoon staff said no-one had been hurt.

A Police spokesman said: “Shortly before 11pm on Saturday a car collided with a lamppost and a wall on Pier Street, Burnham-On-Sea before driving away. Officers have spoken with the registered keeper of the vehicle, which was later found on Adam Street, and enquiries are ongoing.”

“Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5222144731.”

The outdoor seating area would usually have been full of cyclists and their families at the end of Saturday’s Chase The Sun Cycle race — but fortunately the wet weather meant it was not busy at the time.
