Boy, 17, arrested after butchers shop crash

A teenager has been arrested after a car crashed into a butchers shop in Cumbria.

A 17-year-old boy from Brampton has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated vehicle taking and causing property damage.

It comes after a car crashed into Colin Moore's Butchers in Low Cross Street at 5.30am on Saturday.

The shop suffered heavy damage as a result of the collision and could be closed for months, owner Colin Moore said.

Police meanwhile are continuing to appeal for any witnesses to the incident.

PC Graham Thompson said: “We are asking anyone who may have been in that area first thing in the morning to get in touch if they noticed anything unusual, or saw the car driving around Brampton.

“The car was a black Chevrolet Kalos, and has been reported as travelling at excessive speed. A young man was seen making off from the scene on foot towards the station – described as short-medium height with dark hair.

“This incident has caused serious damage to the shop and car, which will be costly to repair, and so we are keen to understand exactly what happened on Saturday morning.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call Cumbria police on 101 and ask for PC Thompson, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
