Shannon's Box of Birds has been hit once again by vandals who have smashed hanging flower baskets.

Box of Birds owner Glenn Harrison was not happy to find the dirty mess outside his store on Sunday morning.

"Two were smashed and came flying off, making a mess all over the ground with dirt all in the gutters," he said. "They made a good job of it, I have to say."

Mr Harrison said it wasn't the first time that vandals have destroyed some of the town's hanging flower baskets.


"It happens often. Why don't people take pride in their town, it's the place that you live.

Others try their best to keep it looking nice and then you get some [expletive] coming through and doing that."

The flower baskets had been in full bloom.

"Take pride in your town, you only have the one, keep it looking nice," said Mr Harrison.
