Vandal smashes window of Newton’s Wine Bar and Tapas in Bourne
The owners of a wine bar in Bourne have been left devastated after a vandal smashed their window a day before reopening.
At about 3.25am on Tuesday morning (May 18), a vandal hit the window of Newton’s Wine Bar and Tapas in Bourne multiple times causing the glass to crack.
Owners Keith and Gail Newton, who were sleeping in a room directly above the window, were woken by the noise but by the time they could check what was going on the vandal had gone.
However, the male, who had a rucksack, was captured on the restaurant’s CCTV.
Keith said: “The police were called and they came immediately which was very good. They had already been patrolling Bourne as there had been problems in The Burghley Centre.”
Monday was a busy night for many of the pubs in the town as it was the first time businesses could welcome customers inside this year.
“It has sickened our customers because this businesses is me, my wife Gail and daughters, Juliette and Sophie. It’s a family business,” said Keith.
“It is dreadful that we have got this minority of people who try to destroy businesses or families.
“It’s disgusting - they don’t get anything out of it.”
The business in North Street reopened to customers inside yesterday.
Anyone with information on the vandalism should call Lincolnshire Police on 101 quoting incident 38 of May 18.
