Preston March 22 (SL/BAN) It’s what Briton's businesses had dreaded it is starting....we all know the fight against coronavirus has begun however to then also face the criminals on the streets is another story.
In Preston City centre shops have been attacked on the first day of lock down.
Prestonblog.co.uk reported "Three venues in Preston city centre have been broken into during the first night of Government-enforced closures.
Preston’s pubs, bars and restaurants shut yesterday (Friday 20 March) as part of the UK’s latest bid to beat the coronavirus pandemic.
Just a few hours later Lofty’s and The Curiosity Coffee Shop in Glover’s Court and Ice Burg in Miller Arcade each had bricks put through their windows."
Come on Britons we are better than this, criminals put your behaviour on hold whilst the Nation fights this coronavirus crisis.
As reported by prestonblog.co.uk the owner of Lofty's owner Andrew Forster said: “I knew venues would be vulnerable to this sort of thing but didn’t expect it so soon".
“Well nobody was hurt at least, and three of them were caught after cutting themselves climbing through the window".
“Let’s just hope the justice system decides to ‘isolate’ them for a very long time.”
At times like this is when we need to pull together.
