A cash reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest of anyone involved in the smashing of a shop window which will cost thousands of pounds to replace.

The window was smashed in the early hours of Saturday morning. Dan and Sue Pearce, owners of Tudor Sweets on the High Street were alerted by staff from nearby Cornwall's Butchers when they arrived for work several hours later.

Daniel told the Ross Gazette that he believes it was a man and woman who caused the damage while they were fighting. He said:?"I don't think it was deliberate but it is typical of modern behaviour - just not thinking about any one else's property."

"Being a listed building the replacement curved glass will have to be hand-rolled and that could take several weeks," said Daniel.

Tudor Sweets has occupied one of the town's only remaining original black and white half timbered buildings since it opened just over two years ago. It has become a tourist attraction and Daniel and Sue never cease to be amazed by the number of visitors asking them to take photographs standing outside the shop.

Despite the incident it will be business as usual at Tudor Sweets, the window is boarded up and a sign urges customers to look inside.

The police are investigating the incident and enquiries are on-going. They are very keen to speak to anyone who saw anything. If you have any information about this incident telephone the police on 0300 333 3000.
