Police have appealed for information after mean-spirited vandals smashed the glass door of a Burnham-On-Sea charity shop in an early morning break-in over the weekend.

Officers were called to the Sue Ryder shop in Burnham-On-Sea High Street early on Sunday morning (September 26th).

The shop’s weekend manager told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “Our glass front door was smashed in an apparent attempt to gain entry – it’s sickening that this has happened to a charity.”

“They are the lowest of the low. Nothing appears to have been stolen, so we don’t know why it happened.”

She added: “We had to delay our opening by an hour and a quarter while we cleared away all the glass to make the shop safe.”

She thanked customers for their support and reassured them that the shop is open as usual this week.

A Police spokeswoman said: “Police are investigating after a window of a commercial premises in the High Street, Burnham-On-Sea was smashed at around 1.10am on Sunday 26 September in a suspected incident of criminal damage.“
