Window smashing vandals go on Minehead rampage

VANDALS caused damage estimated at tens of thousands of pounds in Minehead when they went on a window-smashing spree during the night of Friday, November 16-Saturday, November 17.
A total of about 80 windows were broken, including almost 50 in the West Somerset Community College alone.
Other premises to be targets of the vandals included the nearby Aquasplash leisure centre, Minehead Cricket Club, in Bircham Road, the sea front Queens Hall, three public telephone kiosks in Jubilee Gardens, Hedley Price Funeral Directors, in Mart Road, the McDonalds restaurant, in Vulcan Road, and Tom Williams Lawn Mower Centre, in Ponsford Road.
Two iron bars were found near one of the premises
CCTV film of the areas is being studied by police who have also appealed for any witnesses to come forward.
Anybody who may have information should contact PC Jeff Trimmings at Minehead Police Station by telephoning 0845 4567000 or they can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111, where they do not have to give their name but they could receive a reward.
A fortnight earlier, damage was also caused to three other premises in the town when windows were smashed at Traveline Holidays, in the Summerland car park, and nearby Subway, in The Avenue, and the adjacent Lifestyle Warehouse.
