A BUSINESSWOMAN is calling for more CCTV cameras to be installed in a Suffolk market town after her interior design company was targeted by vandals twice in two weeks.

Around £500 of damage was caused when seven heavy pots were smashed and hedges pulled up outside Global Trading, in Quay Street, Woodbridge, at the weekend.

Owner Nicky Read, said she is now reviewing security measures on the premises and has called for more CCTV to be installed within Woodbridge itself.

Mrs Read said: “Last weekend they caused about £100 of damage by just pulling out the hedges - they couldn't knock the pots over because they are quite heavy and screwed into the ground. However this time around they managed it and pulled out the hedges as well.

“It was a real mess. The girls who work in the shop were left quite upset by it. It's a worry because I'm concerned that we might be being targeted.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said officers were investigating the incident, which is believed to have happened between 5.30pm on Saturday and 10am yesterday.
