CHARITY workers are counting the cost today after vandals smashed their shop window.

Clothes in the window display of the Red Cross shop in Felixstowe Road were left covered in shards of glass and dust after the incident.

Shop manager Irene Webb, said that she was stunned when she arrived at work to find a huge hole in the thick glass window.

A large blue wheel nut was found in the window display, which Mrs Webb believes mindless vandals hurled through.

She said: "I just don't know what to say about these people.

"I work here seven days a week and we are here to help people – no-one gets paid.

"I just can't believe someone would do this."

Today's incident just adds to the bad luck the shop has suffered since it opened two months ago, as not long after the opening ceremony the stock room was flooded.

Mrs Webb said: "The customers cannot believe that it has happened.

"Everyone around here always really helps us – I am absolutely gobsmacked."
