Alcester High Street shop owner 'devastated' as car crashes through front window

Redditch Editorial 14th Jul, 2022   0

A VEHICLE smashed through the front of a shop in Alcester in the early hours of Tuesday morning (July 12) leaving the business owner devastated.

Police were called to The Sun Shop just after 5.30am to find extensive damage to the front of the building.

The shop is owned by Larissa Chandler, who only opened it in May. She wrote on Facebook: “It comes with a heavy heart that we will unfortunately be closed for the time being.

“Thank goodness our lovely landlords who live above the shop are OK”.




The incident woke the building owners Jan and Red Masterson who said they were in absolute shock and distress.

“It’s just not Alcester”, they added.


If anyone has any footage of the incident or heard anything they should contact Warwickshire Police on 101.

Alternatively, information can be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
