Ruth Curtis, from Captain Stan’s said previously about the fish shop incident: “Somebody has crowbarred their way into the shop in the early hours of this morning, we’ve got CCTV from next-door. Some idiot has trashed the shop, it’s all out of the freezer they’ve just turned everything upside down, obviously looking for money.

“I’m just waiting for the police to come at the moment, so I haven’t had a good look to see if anything is gone. But yeah, they’ve trashed the shop.”
